Prevent the Sequester to Protect Our Air, Water, Wildlife and Public Lands

Thursday, October 18, 2012

The budgetary “sequester” scheduled for January 2013 must be avoided in order to prevent deep and damaging cuts to federal programs that support public lands and the communities and wildlife that depend on them, clean air and water, and a sustainable energy future. Unless Congress identifies another way to reduce the deficit, the consequences will be deeply damaging for programs that are important to protect the environment and public health, which are both popular with the American people and important for local economies.
