DEADLINE FRIDAY COB – Letter to Administration on Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan

Please join me in sending a letter to the Trump Administration in opposition to reopening the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan (DRECP). Effective implementation of the DRECP will be critical to California’s efforts to combat climate change and achieve
its renewable energy mandates. Instead of amending the plan, the Administration should be focused on implementing the plan in collaboration with state, local governments, tribal governments, and other stakeholders.

Deadline COB TODAY: Original Cosponsor Request: WATER ACT 2018

Our water infrastructure is in a state of emergency. People in Flint, Michigan, still do not have access to safe drinking water. They are not alone. Families in communities across the country, from Detroit to Philadelphia to San Diego, have lost running
water or access to safe drinking water in their homes because they can not afford the increasing costs of water rates. We need a major federal investment in our public water infrastructure to renovate our nation’s old and lead-ridden water pipes, stop sewage
overflows and stem our water affordability crisis.

Protect our Air and Water; Call for Scott Pruitt to Resign!

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt has shown time and time again he puts special interests and polluters over families, our health and our pocketbooks.  Ethics problems garner attention but damage to the air we breathe and water
we drink have higher costs and are more serious.  The EPA was established to enforce environmental protections through monitoring, research, and regulations; yet, as Administrator, Pruitt has abandoned the agency’s commitment to public health and environmental
protection by hiring industry polluters, rolling back environmental safeguards, and putting politics over science.  This brazen attack on clean air and water puts our health and the health of future generations at risk.

Co-Sponsor H.R. 4426 – the Sustainable Energy Development Reform Act!

            The Trump Administration and Interior Secretary Zinke have made one thing abundantly clear: when it comes to America’s public lands, the hopes and dreams of oil, gas, and coal executives come first. On Day 1, they began taking a wrecking ball
to Obama Administration policies that balanced energy development with conservation, protected public health, encouraged stakeholder participation in energy decisions, held companies accountable, managed public land for multiple uses, and planned for and attempted
to mitigate the effects of human-induced climate change. America’s most important natural places are under direct attack from the dirty energy agenda of Donald Trump and his fossil fuel cronies.
