Ten members of the U.S. House of Representatives, including Rep. Tim Walberg of Michigan, are the subject of a new multi-million dollar television and online advertising campaign aimed at informing their constituents about who voted against clean air protections and for corporate polluters, and who voted to protect public health. The intensive advertising campaign highlights the lawmakers' votes on the TRAIN Act (H.R. 2401), which recently passed in the House and aims to block clean air protections against life-threatening air pollution. Rep. Walberg voted against the interest of Michigan families and for polluters by supporting the TRAIN Act, which based on Environmental Protection Agency, could result in as many as 139,500 lives lost to air pollution during the next seven years. -
Founded by legendary conservationist John Muir in 1892, the Sierra Club is now the nation's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization -- with more than two million members and supporters. Our successes range from protecting millions of acres of wilderness to helping pass the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act. More recently, we've made history by leading the charge to address climate disruption by moving away from the dirty fossil fuels and toward a clean energy economy.
