ACT NOW to Support Coal Ash Provisions in Transportation Bill!

A new online tool has been created at to help people contact their Congressional representatives in support of legislation that would prevent a “hazardous waste” designation for coal ash.

 Lawmakers from both the House and Senate are now working to craft a final version of the federal surface transportation bill. One of the issues they must resolve is whether to include provisions in the bill that would establish federal requirements for state programs to ensure the safe management of coal ash.

 There is strong bipartisan support for regulating coal ash as a non-hazardous waste, which will protect human health and the environment, jobs, and electricity consumers. But your help is needed to ensure coal ash is regulated right.

 Tell Congress to include bipartisan coal ash provisions in the surface transportation bill. This will ensure that coal ash is managed properly and in an environmentally protective way by the states, while providing for its continued recycling or beneficial use.
