Achieve Climate and Consumer Benefits

Sign the Petition to Oppose Republican Attacks on the Clean Power Plan

The so-called Ratepayer Protection Act is the latest Republican bill to take aim at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and its plan to reduce carbon pollution.

Rather than protecting consumers, it would harm those who pay electricity bills by undermining the government’s proposal to reduce carbon pollution — a plan expected to lower electricity bills.

Add Your Name to Protect Consumers and Support Climate Action

We, the undersigned, call on Congress to cease obstructionist tactics that undermine the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) mandate to protect human health and the environment by reducing harmful greenhouse gases. Not only will the EPA’s Clean Power Plan yield significant health and environmental benefits, it also will benefit consumers by lowering electricity bills. Legislation that seeks to delay or prevent implementation of the Clean Power Plan is legislation to delay or prevent critical action on climate disruption and the benefits that action is expected to generate for the American people.

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.
