Coalition Pressures Rep. Frelinghuysen on EPA Budget Cuts

Town Hall Event to Educate Public About Threats to Air, Water


In September, the House will vote on a federal budget that could inflict massive cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency and other agencies that protect our water, air, and protected lands. As chair of the Appropriations Committee, Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen has the power to block these devastating cuts.


A coalition of environmental groups will hold a town hall event to discuss the future of the EPA, and the role that Rep. Frelinghuysen will play in the coming budget negotiations.
