Thanks to YOU and thousands of activists all over the country, critical chemical security legislation was voted out of the House Energy and Commerce Committee without any weakening amendments! Now, the legislation is on its way to the full House for a vote and we need your support once again.
For the first time since the Sept. 11th attacks we have a chance to pass legislation to ensure that the highest risk chemical plants user safer chemical processes. This will not only make them less attractive terrorist targets it will eliminate the risk of disastrous chemical accidents. As President Obama once said, "these plants are stationary weapons of mass destruction spread all across the country."
By converting them to safer chemical processes we will protect millions of Americans now at risk and enhance the job security and safety of people working at these plants.
Please take a minute today and send your Representative a message: Prevent chemical disasters pass "The Chemical and Water Security Act of 2009" (H.R. 2868) today!
