Letter Opposing Senate Joint Resolution 28

In a letter to members of the U.S. Senate, over 40 national and 30 state-based organizations sent a letter to Congress calling on members to protect first responders, industrial workers, communities and our nation’s infrastructure by vigorously opposing the CRA resolution and any other similar efforts to weaken national protections from chemical disasters.

April 25, 2017

The BlueGreen Alliance joined labor, environmental, environmental justice, and other organizations to urge members of Congress to stand up for workers, first responders, and fence-line communities by opposing any effort to use the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to overturn the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) recently finalized amendments to the Accidental Release Prevention Requirements for Risk Management Programs (RMP).

Americans look to Congress to protect our air, water, and families. We are counting on you to reject this ill-advised move to block safeguards that would save lives and better protect communities from facing a preventable chemical disaster.
