9/27 news briefing on hurricanes used as pretext to weaken health and environmental standards

NEWS ADVISORY



DIRTY STORM SURGE

HURRICANES AS PRETEXT TO WEAKEN HEALTH STANDARDS
No one (except perhaps oil companies?) likes high gasoline prices. But now price increases linked to the Katrina catastrophe are prompting some in Congress to recycle bad ideas and promote legislation that would weaken health and environmental protections. That would mean dirtier air – and more public health damage.

Equally bad, some want to rush something through to help oil companies without appropriate discussion of the issues. We think it’s worth taking a few minutes to explore the consequences of weakening key public health protections.

Please join us at a Tuesday September 27 luncheon briefing, as public health, environmental, state and local groups examine:

Ø How the hurricanes are being used as a pretext to attack clean-air controls
Ø Specific clean-air requirements that are under assault
Ø The public health consequences of weakening current protections

Who: Invited speakers from:
--American Lung Association
--Environmental Integrity Project
--Natural Resources Defense Council
--State and Territorial Air Pollution Program Administrators/
Association of Local Air Pollution Control Officials
--U.S. PIRG

When: Tuesday, September 27, 2005 12:30 p.m. [Lunch served]

Where: Hall of the States, 444 North Capitol Street, NW, Room 233
