Help us protect families in Virginia and across the U.S. from the dangers of coal ash, the waste left over from burning coal at power plants. This waste contains cancer-causing toxins like arsenic and is stored in communities all over America. The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed new, strong regulations for the storage of coal ash, but a dangerous Senate bill (S. 1751) has been introduced that could stop them.
Please call Senators Warner and Webb today and ask them to oppose S. 1751, the Coal Residuals Reuse and Management Act, in order to protect American families from exposure to toxic coal ash.

Here is a sample script to help you get started:
Hello, my name is ______________ and I live in (your city), Virginia . I’m calling to urge Senator Webb/Warner to oppose Senate Bill 1751, and allow the EPA to develop strong regulations for coal ash disposal.
The Coal Residuals Reuse and Management Act (S.1751) would prevent the EPA from having authority to regulate coal ash waste disposal, therefore continuing to put communities near coal ash waste sites at risk. This is unacceptable and Congress should allow the EPA to enact these important protections.
Do you know where Senator Webb/Warner stands on Senate Bill 1751?
After you call, please fill out our short questionnaire below to let us know that you called. Thank you!
