LAST CALL: Tell Trump to Remove Scott Pruitt

This week, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt faced intensifying criticism of the many ethics scandals that surround him.   Pruitt has recently come under fire for his expensive taxpayer-funded travel and advocating on behalf
of an industry lobbyist in exchange for a low-cost condo rental.  Yet the White House continues to support Pruitt and assure him that his job is safe.  On Monday night, President Trump reportedly called Pruitt to tell him “keep your head up, keep fighting”
and “we have your back.”  When asked about Scott Pruitt by the press on Tuesday, President Trump sidestepped ethics questions and stated “I hope he’s going to be great.”

LAST CALL: Prevent Drastic Systemic Changes to SNAP

Please join us in urging the Agriculture Appropriations Committee to include language prohibiting funds from being used to implement the Trump Administration’s “American Harvest Box” proposal.  As you know, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program helped
more than 41 million people in FY2017 access fresh fruit, vegetables, proteins, and other healthy foods.  SNAP grants families the ability to purchase food items that are right for their families, ensuring that their specific nutritional needs are met.  Without
the benefits provided by SNAP, many low-income Americans would struggle to provide their families with food.
