We're sure that you've seen recent news regarding potential cuts to Environmental Protection Agency programs. The EPA is important – they're the force that's helping our environment, and their mission is our mission. Global warming isn't a hoax, and we need to step up our game to make sure that our government is taking all necessary measures to combat this risk.
The Office of Management and Budget released its plan for the proposed 2018 budget, which includes elimination of or deep cuts to vital programs.
The Environmental Agency Energy Star, WaterSense, and Safer Choice are all at risk here.
USGBC is working with Congress to preserve vital funding for these and other programs, and they need everyone's help to do it.
You can also contact your elected official directly and let your support for these programs be heard.
This is a fight we all need to take part in, and we can't lose it.
