Every member of our community is entitled to their own opinion on the case — and the peaceful expression of those opinions is the cornerstone of our democracy. However, there

Good morning, Administrator Pruitt. The Environmental Protection Agency is responsible for protecting human health and the environment and ensuring clean air and clean water for families and children. Yet the budget you have come before us to support today would endanger the health of millions of Americans, jeopardize the quality of our air and water, and wreak havoc on our economy. The Trump Administration’s fiscal year 2018 budget abandons the EPA’s responsibility to the American people by proposing a $2.4 billion cut— a 30 percent cut! The last time an EPA appropriation was this low was in 1990.  This Administration would set the Agency back 30 years, ignoring the complex envi
