Delaware Senators Tom Carper and Chris Coons vote for Clean Air Act for all Americans

April 6, 2011


“In the face of today’s repeated attempts to put our health and safety at risk, Delaware’s Senators Tom Carper and Chris Coons fought to make sure that Americans will have clean air to breathe. They 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. Senators Carper and Coons showed the kind of leadership that we need in Congress. Every person in Delaware who has lungs should call them to say thank you.”
