Michigan LCV joined the national League of Conservation Voters in launching a new radio ad in Michigan’s 6th and 7th congressional districts targeting Rep. Upton and Rep. Walberg for their votes for an amendment to the House spending measure that blocks scientists at the EPA from enforcing safeguards for mercury pollution.

“The EPA has a responsibility under the law to set air pollution limits that protect the public’s health and hold polluters accountable, and it is simply wrong for politicians like Representatives Upton and Walberg to interfere by blocking scientists at the EPA from doing their job,” said Michigan LCV’s Executive Director, Lisa Wozniak. “Scientists, not politicians, should determine our air pollution limits.”

The radio ad will be running in the Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, South Bend, Lansing, and rural media markets and is complemented by online advertising and phone calls into the district to inform constituents of Representatives Upton’s and Walberg’s votes. The ad references House roll call vote 86 which was offered by Rep. John Carter (R-TX).*
