We need more help to clean the air

Wouldn't it be nice to have clean air? No fighting about how we're going to get it, or how soon, or the technicalities that are forced down our throats as excuses to why we can't have it now.

Well, I think I know a solution that will lead us in the right direction, and I know the person who can do it. Mr. Governor, please sign Senate Bill 719 to add public health voices to our Valley Air Board! The board is a public health agency and needs this expertise to solve one of the hardest problems our valley is facing today. Between the economic and health consequences that bad air causes, we cannot afford a delay. These additional voices can only help, and we need all the help we can get.

Think of all the coughing and wheezing you'll end with one stroke of a pen.
