Late Friday night Congress and President Obama ended their standoff; after hours of tense negotiations they agreed to a budget.
Clean Air and the EPA were on the negotiating table but we stood up to the Big Polluter agenda -- and it worked! Thousands of us called on President Obama to not cave to Big Polluters, and with 10,000 of us coming to Washington, DC for Power Shift, President Obama and Congress knew they had to stand strong in this fight.
That’s huge, but we can’t stop here. The budget isn't much to celebrate -- we saved the EPA for now, but Big Polluters are still on the loose, receiving massive handouts, dodging taxes, and polluting our air, all at the expense of our economy and public health.
