Protect Children and Families From Toxic Mercury!
The Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) protect against mercury and 80+ other hazardous pollutants such as arsenic, acid gas, and lead, and the Trump Administration has put these crucial health protections on the chopping block.
EPA estimates that MATS save up to 11,000 lives per year and prevent thousands of heart attacks, asthma attacks and hospital visits each year. However, Trump and his administration have chosen to place the wishes of their allies before the health of children and families.
To stop this attack in its tracks, we need Americans stepping up. Take action today, and join the outcry against this disastrous proposal.

Subject Line: Protect children and families from toxic mercury
Dear Acting Administrator Wheeler,
The Trump administration's reconsideration of the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) is a disgraceful attack on safeguards put in place to keep children and families safe from the dangers of mercury and other hazardous pollutants. It is now evident the administration will not even stop when the well-being of our most vulnerable is at risk.
If MATS is undone, we can expect more brain damage in fetuses and more learning disabilities in our children as well as more heart attacks, asthma attacks and deaths across the US. There should be no doubt about the proper course of action.
[Your Comment] Please keep American families safe by immediately walking back this senseless attack on critical protections.
