Dear Myra,

The Obama Administration announced today that it is withdrawing an important new life-saving smog standard, once again delaying action to reduce ozone pollution that threatens millions of Americans and contributes to as many as 12,000 premature deaths every year.

This decision leaves in place outdated, Bush-era standards that lag far behind what scientists have unanimously recommended and will result in more than 45,000 cases of aggravated asthma and over 1.5 million missed work or school days per year.

Millions of children and adults with respiratory illnesses like asthma are particularly vulnerable to elevated levels of ozone pollution.

Please join me in expressing your disappointment with the White House decision. Send an email to President Obama today.

The Fight for Clean Air

As disappointing as today's announcement is, we will have our hands full this Fall fighting back against many other outrageous assaults on the EPA and our landmark clean air laws.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) sent a letter this week to colleagues outlining a vigorous political strategy to block as many as eight life-saving clean air standards.

We will need your continued support and constant vigilance over the next several months to take on the polluter allies in Congress and beat back these ideological and counter-productive attacks.

For now, please join me in expressing your disappointment with today's White House decision.
