AFGE EPA Council Launches "Save the Environment" Campaign

 
EPA-Save-Environment

The American Federation of Government Employees National Council #238 of EPA Locals today launched its "Save the Environment—Save the EPA" campaign to bring attention to the dangerous impacts the draconian budget cuts proposed by Congress would have on the ability of the EPA to protect our nation's human health and the environment. In conjunction with the launch of this campaign, the Council has created a website, www.SaveTheEPA.com, which will highlight campaign issues and provide information on Council and congressional action.

"What is the point of cutting EPA's budget today to reduce the federal deficit if the end result is more illness and death due to a short-sighted focus on costs with no consideration of the benefits of spending?” Says Council President Chuck Orzehoskie. “Some people have forgotten that EPA's budget protects future generations from the harmful effects previous and current generations have caused.”

The campaign aims to inform the American public regarding the budget cuts and how those cuts affect the EPA’s ability to carry out its mission.  

"The Council believes the American public needs to be educated about how EPA's work is being undermined and to motivate them to speak out in favor of clean air and water, and against destroying the beauty of this great country," says Orzehoskie. "To that end, we intend to conduct surveys of the American people on environmental issues to obtain their view of the importance of EPA, and focus on key funding cuts that will harm human health and our nation's environment."
