Congressman Rehberg Supports Polluters Over Health of Children
Montana Conservation Voters has long worked on the issue of clean, renewable energy, often shining the spotlight on candidates and elected officials who consistently side with big polluters. There has never been a better time to hold Congressman Rehberg accountable for doing a poor job working for Montana, and a good job working to help big oil and coal companies.
Health care workers across the state are becoming increasingly concerned by recent federal legislation that continues to prevent the EPA from keeping dangerous pollution and chemicals out of our air and water. Not only does pollution contribute to climate change, but it causes health problems, like asthma and lung cancer, in Montanans.
Montana Conservation Voters released a press report this week that highlights how many children and adults are living with asthma in Montana, as well as related legislation Congressman Rehberg has been sponsoring. These are bills that continue to harm our public health by giving big polluters free rein when it comes to how much, and what, they are polluting.
