The White House decided to give Dudley a recess appointment. Click here to send a message to Congress that this is unacceptable... Congress must start investigations to make sure Dudley isn't putting us all at risk. The air we breathe depends on it!

Stop Susan Dudley: The air you breathe depends on it

Bush and his administration are on the attack -- again. This time it is with the nomination of Susan Dudley as administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA). OIRA reviews everything from auto safety standards to limits on industrial chemicals and air and water pollutants.

As director of regulatory studies at the industry-funded Mercatus Center, she was foe to countless environmental, health and safety rules. She:
  • opposed EPA’s attempts to keep arsenic out of drinking water and lower levels of disease-causing smog;
  • questioned NHTSA’s life-saving air bag regulations and the Department of Transportation’s hours-of-service rules to keep sleep-deprived truck drivers off the roads; and
  • championed energy deregulation, which has led to skyrocketing prices.

The Senate refused to let her nomination leave committee last year... but Bush nominated her again in 2007... and put her in power through the backdoor by making her a "senior advisor"!

Tell the Senate to keep the public safe and healthy -- by keeping Susan Dudley out of OIRA!

Safety or money in the short-term -- which do you choose?
Why again?
The Senate decided in 2006 not to let the Dudley nomination leave the committee--and even told Bush that re-nominating her would be a waste of time.
Not only has Bush renominated Dudley, but he has also given her even more power to damage our health and safety with a recent executive order.

Stop Susan Dudley now.
She's Bush's secret weapon to shelve safety regulations.

Learn More about the distinction between these two components of Public Citizen.

Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation

Together, two separate corporate entities called Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation, Inc., form Public Citizen. Both entities are part of the same overall organization, and this Web site refers to the two organizations collectively as Public Citizen.

Although the work of the two components overlaps, some activities are done by one component and not the other. The primary distinction is with respect to lobbying activity. Public Citizen, Inc., an IRS § 501(c)(4) entity, lobbies Congress to advance Public Citizen’s mission of protecting public health and safety, advancing government transparency, and urging corporate accountability. Public Citizen Foundation, however, is an IRS § 501(c)(3) organization. Accordingly, its ability to engage in lobbying is limited by federal law, but it may receive donations that are tax-deductible by the contributor. Public Citizen Inc. does most of the lobbying activity discussed on the Public Citizen Web site. Public Citizen Foundation performs most of the litigation and education activities discussed on the Web site.

You may make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., Public Citizen Foundation, or both. Contributions to both organizations are used to support our public interest work. However, each Public Citizen component will use only the funds contributed directly to it to carry out the activities it conducts as part of Public Citizen’s mission. Only gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible. Individuals who want to join Public Citizen should make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., which will not be tax deductible.
