From SafeMinds: Action Alert – Help Needed to Eliminate a Major Source of Mercury Pollution
Posted Sep 30 2009 12:00am
As written previously HERE, SafeMinds supports the effort lead by the environmental group Oceana to phase out the use of mercury in chlorine and caustic soda production by 2012. The Mercury Pollution Reduction Act (H.R. 2190) will be considered by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce Wednesday, September 30th at 10 AM and amendments have been proposed to weaken the bill, including a proposed delay of the phase out until 2018.
We need your help to contact Representatives on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce Wednesday morning to oppose any weakening amendments to H.R. 2190. To get more information and take action, go to the Oceana Take Action site HERE.
