Tell State Officials: Support Cleaner Cars to Reduce Asthma & Air Pollution!
Dear Governor Wolf and DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell,
A 2020 MIT study showed that Pennsylvania has the worst per capita number of premature deaths due to air pollution in the country. The Pittsburgh region in particular suffers rates of asthma that are 2-3 times higher than the national average. That’s thanks in part to tailpipe pollution from dirty cars and trucks.
Pennsylvanians have a right to clean, healthy air to breathe. That’s why I urge the Department of Environmental Protection to adopt the Zero Emission Vehicle program with a strong 100% electric vehicle sales rule.
