CSS Opposes House Bills to Weaken Public Safeguards
On the week of February 24-28, the U.S. House is considering a series of bills that would weaken public safeguards. Member groups of the Coalition for Sensible Safeguards sent a letter to Members of Congress (2/25/14) opposing the bills:
Our undersigned groups strongly oppose a package of legislative measures that will be on the House floor this week. These proposals would undermine our nation’s ability to set health, safety and environmental standards as well as new financial protections. Given that we have experienced multiple health and safety disasters in communities and workplaces across the country in recent years, it is the wrong time to thwart the progress of necessary public protections.
We need stronger public protections, not a weaker system of safeguards.
