Isn't about time we spoke up?
Congress has the responsibility to ensure that decisions on federal environmental legislation and policy are based on accurate and complete scientific
information. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has ignored repeated requests for information on toxic mercury pollution, clean air, and global
warming from members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, which is responsible for oversight on these and other critical public
health issues. Urge EPA Administrator Michael Leavitt to release the requested information to allow Congress to fulfill its responsibilities to
protect public health and to restore scientific integrity in federal policymaking.
