Rep. Upton Hears From Frustrated Constituents

Last week, Rep. Upton went on a listening tour of his district and faced hard questions from constituents about his efforts to undermine the Clean Air Act.

It was great to see the outpouring of support for the Clean Air Act and public health -- but Rep. Upton's responses left much to be desired. One constituent summed up the situation very well:

While Rep. Upton was touring his district, the American Lung Association launched a billboard campaign urging him to end his attacks on the Clean Air Act.

With more than two thirds of Rep. Upton's constituents opposing his efforts against the Clean Air Act, Rep. Upton should listen to the clear will of his constituents and support public health instead of trying to undermine the Clean Air Act.
