Tell the EPA: It's time to crack down on smog from power plants

Docket # EPA-HQ-OAR-2021-0668-0007

Millions of Americans are exposed to unhealthy levels of air pollution, but it doesn't have to be that way. I strongly support the adoption of the updated Cross State Air Pollution Rule that requires power plants and other industrial polluters to adopt modern controls to limit smog in our communities.

Clean air is critical to protecting the environment and the public health. If adopted, the rule would prevent approximately 1,000 premature deaths and avoid more than 2,000 hospital and emergency room visits, 1.3 million cases of asthma symptoms, and 470,000 school absence days in 2026. We can't pass up this opportunity to promote healthier communities across the country.
