Citizens for Recycling First has placed a petition on a new White House website that promises a response from the Obama Administration if we can get 5,000 signatures in 30 days. You can sign the petition by clicking here: http://wh.gov/gu4
The White House recently launched a program called “We the People” that is designed to “provide you with a new way to petition the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues facing our country. If a petition gets enough support, White House staff will review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response.”
Citizens for Recycling First’s petition reads: “We believe the Obama Administration should protect coal ash recycling by promptly enacting disposal regulations that do NOT designate coal ash a ‘hazardous waste.’” The 5,000 signatures must be gathered by October 24 in order to compel a response from the White House.
Sign the petition today! Then encourage everyone you know to sign it, too!
