Anti-Environmental Budget Riders
A significant assault on health and environmental protection is underway in Congress.

Overview
Lawmakers must pass 12 spending bills for fiscal 2012 to fund the government, and some House Republicans are seizing this opportunity to jam through unpopular anti-environmental policies that have nothing to do with spending.

2014 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.

Congress Must Get Transportation Bill Back on Track
Overview
Once again, Republican leadership is hijacking a must-pass bill in order to advance an extreme anti-environmental agenda. The House should be working on a thoughtful transportation policy that could actually become law - not playing games by adding misguided and destructive measures to the already-delayed transportation bill.
