"Greens Launch Ad Campaign To Defend EPA Budget"

"An environmental group has launched a $1 million ad buy to pressure vulnerable Republicans on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) budget.

The ad campaign highlights local public health work undertaken by the EPA and contends the agency's efforts would be curtailed if the Trump administration’s proposed 31 percent funding cut for the agency takes effect.

The television, radio and online ads will run in 10 GOP-held House districts and in Washington, D.C., through early September. EDF Action, the political arm of the Environmental Defense Fund, is the group behind the ads."
