Tell Congress that Americans Don’t Deserve Second-Rate Protections

Dirty food, dirty air, dirty water—that’s what we’ll get if we don’t stop Congress from passing the so-called Regulatory Accountability Act (RAA). Take action now by sending your senators a quick email. The bill would trump other laws to put business interests before the public interest at every turn. It would add burdensome legal steps to block the path of rules designed to safeguard Americans, and force government agencies to focus on the cheapest, rather than the best options when it comes to health and safety.

If it passes, commonsense protections for clean air, unleaded gasoline, healthy school foods, and nutrition labeling would also all be at risk.

Urge your senators not to sell out Americans to Big Food and other Big Business.
