EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt has proven himself unfit to lead the federal agency that protects our public health, environment, and economy. During his past year in office, Pruitt has worked to silence scientists and derail dozens of environmental safeguards that protect our clean air, clean water, public lands, and climate. We need to remove him from EPA and replace him with someone who will stand up for the American people rather than protecting polluters.

Oppose Unfair Taxes on Clean Cars
Maine is the most oil-dependent state in the entire country and also has the highest rates of asthma. The majority of our climate-changing pollution comes from cars and trucks. Maine should be encouraging the use of cars that use less fuel, but the LePage Administration is proposing unfair new taxes for those who drive hybrid and electric cars. All legislators will be voting on these new taxes soon and need to hear from you today.
Don’t Let CMP Tax Solar!
The PUC and CMP are trying to impose a fee on solar energy Mainers produce and use on site. This fee would boost CMP’s profits and make it harder for Maine businesses and people to produce their own power. Plus, implementing this new billing system will cost all Maine electricity consumers millions of dollars. It’s backward, completely unprecedented, and anti-consumer. Tell your legislators to oppose this fee on solar!
Tell EPA You Support the Clean Power Plan
The Trump Administration is proposing to repeal the Clean Power Plan—the nation’s first and only federal limits on carbon pollution from power plants—before it has even take effect! The Plan limits dirty power plant pollution that contaminates our air, warms the cool ocean waters necessary for a healthy ecosystem, and intensifies and increases the frequency of dangerous storms. Tell EPA not to roll back the Clean Power Plan!
Defend the EPA!
The Trump Administration has proposed cutting the EPA budget, launching an assault on the health and environmental safeguards that protect us from toxic chemicals, contaminated drinking water, and climate change pollution. Sign the petition (to be delivered to Maine's Congressional delegation) to protect EPA's programs that keep Maine's air and water clean.
