Stop House Proposal to Disenfranchise Communities and Contaminate Our Water House Floor Vote This Week on HR 4402
HR 4402 is the latest huge giveaway to the mining industry.
The House of Representatives is voting on this bad legislation THIS WEEK. If this bill becomes law, it will allow the mining industry to poison our lakes, rivers and streams and disenfranchise local communities.
HR 4402, the “National Strategic and Critical Minerals Production Act of 2012” masquerades as a law about a select group of minerals, but would actually require less public review and environmental protection for all hardrock mines proposed anywhere in this country!
We need your help now.
Tell your Members of Congress that HR 4402 is bad for the environment and bad for communities.
Dear Representative and Senator,
I urge you to vote no on HR 4402, the National Strategic and Critical Minerals Production Act of 2012. This bill, scheduled to be voted on by the House of Representatives this week, masquerades as a bill about critical and strategic minerals. But, the truth about this legislation is that rewards the nation’s top toxic polluter, the hardrock mining industry, by stripping away key protections for public health, water and communities.
Please vote No on HR 4402.
