I’ve learned that H.R. 861 has 7 cosponsors so far who are aiming to dismantle an agency that has transformed the lives of millions of Americans for the better. Since President Richard Nixon formed the agency in 1970, concentrations of common air pollutants, like sulfur dioxide, have dropped 67 percent. The EPA has also worked to help eradicate disasters such as acid rain and leaded gasoline. The agency has also gone out of it’s way to research and find secondhand smoke as a known carcinogen in 1993 which helped create successful litigation against Big Tobacco which also lead to a successful reduction in U.S. smoking rates.
