Tell EPA to Strengthen Safeguards on Soot!

Submit Comments Asking EPA to Strengthen Necessary Protections on Particulate Matter

“For the first time in over 10 years, the Environmental Protection Agency is reviewing regulatory standards on particulate matter or soot pollution.  A 60 day comment collection in the  Federal Register  is open to the public until March 28th. We believe it is essential that EPA hear from nurses who are seeing the health impacts of poor air quality in their personal and professional lives.  After updated standards were announced this year- science, public health, and environmental justice communities have been urging for stronger standards that will go further in protecting health and our planet.
