Clean air for all
April 4, 2012
The Washington Post reports, "The League of Conservation Voters, Mom's Clean Air Force and the Environmental Defense Fund announced this week that it had made a two-week, 'seven-figure' TV ad [link] buy in support of the Environmental Protection Agency's decision last week to limit greenhouse gas emissions from power plants."
Progressive Point: Protecting our kids means making sure they don't get sick from breathing dirty air. New EPA regulations will create limits for coal-fired power plant emissions and benefit the health and environment of all Virginians. Conservatives like George Allen are attacking the new regulations with baseless partisan rhetoric. They are more interested in appeasing their polluting corporate donors than protecting the health of Virginia kids.
Virginians want leaders who will protect their priorities, including families' health. George Allen's priority is defending his corporate donors--today that means attacking new rules to help keep us healthy.
