Letter Urging Opposition to H.R. 3

June 07, 2018

In a letter to the U.S. House of Representatives, NRDC and 11 other organizations joined in urging opposition to the rescissions bill (H.R. 3) because it would cut funding from useful programs across the federal government, including several important environmental and clean energy accounts. Trimming the amounts in these programs budgets will have a negligible impact on the federal deficit, especially compared to the recently passed trillion-dollar corporate tax cut, but these cuts will have a large impact on people who rely on these programs to protect their health and environment.
