It's outrageous that so many of our communities are threatened by toxic waste due to Congress' failure to renew the "polluter pays" tax that once funded the Superfund cleanup program. And the potential for these sites to overflow into nearby towns reminds us just how urgent it is that our leaders act to address the problem.
The Senate voted to make polluters pay to clean up their toxic waste. Now, we need to tell the House to do the same.
Tell your U.S. House representative: Renew the "polluter pays" tax to protect public health and clean up dangerous toxic waste sites.
