The 51 U.S. Senators Who Voted for a Budget that Could Send More Kids to Hospitals

OCTOBER 18, 2017 -- Today in Washington D.C., the U.S. Senate voted to pass a budget proposal that would slash funding for critical environmental protections, open up drilling in the Arctic, and in summary, put people's health and well-being at risk. Gutting funding for clean air and water protection programs puts Americans at serious risk. One Flint mom, Melissa Mays, warned earlier this month that a bare bones Environmental Protection Agency could leave cities across America susceptible to becoming the next #FlintWaterCrisis.  

So... who are the 51 Senators who voted for this #DirtyBudget that could send kids and our elders to the hospital? See below.

There's still time to introduce an amendment to protect EPA funding. 

  • Ask all Senators to step up and protect our right to clean air & water by introducing an amendment to #ProtectEPA funding. Use #AFutureToFightFor.
