No Ash Is Good Ash

Check out this truly fantastic news for citizens everywhere dealing with coal ash.
I would like to point out that only one Alabama representative voted NO.
Thank you Terri Sewell, [D] AL-7

This law would have been devastating to the momentum to regulate toxic coal ash. We have a prime example here in Alabama of how a seemingly innocent community with absolutely no ties to the coal fields can be condemned to a life of toxic coal ash  in their communities and invading their lives, harming their health and peace of mind.
The vote yesterday  / last night was a monumental success for us all!

Lisa Evans
Senior Administrative Counsel

The House voted on the McKinley Amendment (217) last night at about 2:00 am  -- and the amendment passed, but WE GOT THE VOTES WE NEEDED to keep the fight alive in the Senate and to demonstrate to EPA that there is support in the House for the coal ash rulemaking.  YOUR HARD WORK brought us many many votes that otherwise would have been lost!  It was critical that we make a strong show of opposition and, with YOUR help, we did!

The vote was 239 to 183.  Your calls/emails/letters amazingly brought to our side 19 republicans (about 3 times as many as any other environmental rider) including reps from OH, VA, IL and TN!  This was a fantastic feat!

Please check the voting list below and PLEASE  thank your representative with a call or email if he/she voted with us.  We will certainly be asking more of these reps this summer, and they will remember that you thanked them.  Also, next week we will be sending out an organizational letter thanking all who opposed the amendment.  Special thanks to Reps Waxman and Moran who spoke from the floor in opposition at about 1 am.

Again-- you all were key to this great vote.  We will need your help in the senate next week to defeat this amendment, but for now, have a wonderful weekend!
