New Hampshire Lives at Risk

The Local Impact of Federal "Regulatory Reform" Proposals
Released by: NHPIRG

 

A new report by NHPIRG and Demos finds that Granite Staters lives, health and livelihoods would be at risk if so-called “regulatory reform” proposals were to become law, slowing or stopping the regulatory process.  The new report details the number of us who will likely be harmed by just a one-year delay in the creation of three popular upcoming rulemakings.

Key findings:

--As many as 486 preventable asthma attacks among New Hampshire children for each year the government fails to update the restriction on levels of toxic soot in our air.

--As many as 972 days of missed work or school due to air pollution-caused ailments

--As many as 43,000 preventable illnesses from contaminated food for each year the government fails to enact new rules to avoid produce contamination.

DEFEND THE CFPB

Tell your representative to oppose the “Financial CHOICE Act,” which would gut Wall Street reforms and destroy the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as we know it.
