Lung Association to Prez: no toxic riders!

American Lung Association: No Toxic Riders

Statement of Charles D. Connor, President and CEO of the American Lung Association

WASHINGTON –The American Lung Association calls on President Barack Obama to remain resolute for public health and resist any Continuing Resolution that includes policy riders that prevent implementation and enforcement of health and environmental safeguards. Press accounts indicate that the President may be considering support for a CR that includes some of these toxic measures. We urge him to stand fast to protect our children and support a funding measure that is not toxic to public health.
