Protect Communities from Factory Farms

We just heard that Senator Larry Craig is attempting to slip a dangerous provision into the Interior Appropriations bill that would exempt factory farms from prosecution under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) and the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA). CERCLA, commonly known as Superfund, and EPCRA are designed to protect the public from hazardous waste, and to hold companies accountable for pollution violations. This exemption for factory farms would take away one of the few tools people have to stop the horrible pollution that these facilities can cause. Protect public health and the environment by contacting your Congress member and telling them to reject this dangerous provision!
