The Weekly Democratic Party Address was delivered by Congresswoman Debbie Dingell reminding people of the damage being done to the environment by the science-deniers in the Republican Party.
(Congresswoman Debbie Dingell discussed the need for the Trump Administration to work with Congress to de-escalate tension with Iran and the House-passed bipartisan PFAS Action Act, to protect Americans from hazardous PFAS “forever chemicals.” )
This week, the House took significant action to address a problem that is a threat to all Americans: PFAS contamination and its effects to human health and the environment.
“The Dingell PFAS Action Act properly designates these forever chemicals as hazardous substances to accelerate the cleanup process at military facilities and in communities all across this country.
“People are being poisoned by these chemicals every single day and it’s our job to protect them. […]
“[This week’s Trump Administration] proposal to rollback NEPA is one more action by this Administration to ignore scientific-based environmental standards that protect our water, air and lands.
“This is a serious assault that will result in significant costs to American taxpayers because President Trump refuses to accept the effects and the challenges of climate change.
