Anti-Environmental Budget Riders

Overview

2014 Anti-Environmental Budget Riders
Overview
Like an unwanted sequel to a bad movie, House Republicans once again have spent this year attempting to cram destructive, debilitating and even daft "riders" into must-pass bills needed to keep the government running.

2013 Anti-Environmental Budget Riders
Overview
House Republican leaders spent the summer trying to load up last-minute, must-pass legislation with anti-environmental riders. They are trying to delay or repeal protections for air, water, health, lands and species by adding provisions to unrelated spending and debt legislation. If their efforts succeed, they will have reversed many years of environmental progress.
