The U.S. EPA is already on a starvation diet, with a bare-bones budget and staffing level. The administration’s proposed budget will be akin to taking away the agency’s bread and water.

About Save the U.S. EPA 

Save the U.S. EPA is a national campaign being conducted by AFGE Council 238 and the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) in an effort to stop EPA Administrator Pruitt from putting the interests of the coal and fossil fuel industries above those of the American public; abusing taxpayer dollars; drastically cutting or eliminating jobs and programs that are vital to the health and safety of America’s air, water, land and endangered species; and undermining science and public health.
