Montanans: Speak Out about Environmental Protection Agency Cuts

Montanans, you have a VOICE!

Slashing EPA’s budget would be devastating. Let’s tell Washington and our elected officials how the proposed EPA budget cuts, environmental and health protection rollbacks and the outright suppression of scientific data would affect our state and our communities.

Clean air, climate change, public health, Superfund clean-ups, “ brownfield” community investments, public lands management… all this is at risk.

We’ll start with a panel of community leaders and then turn it over to you – give us 2-3 minutes of your thoughts about what these devastating proposals mean to you, your families and your communities, and we’ll make sure our elected officials hear your concerns.
