NEWS RELEASE

"In the face of today's repeated attempts to put our health and safety at risk, New Hampshire's Senator Jeanne Shaheen fought to make sure that Americans will have clean air to breathe. She helped beat back four different measures in the U.S. Senate that would have weakened the Clean Air Act, which protects Americans from dangerous pollution like mercury, carbon, and methane. Senator Shaheen showed the kind of leadership that we need in Congress. Every person in New Hampshire who has lungs should call her to say thank you."
