Chicken factory farms on Maryland's Eastern Shore produce large amounts of harmful air pollution. But in a recent announcement, the Hogan Administration teamed up with Delmarva Poultry Inc. to whitewash reporting on the impacts of this harmful pollution.
Eastern Shore residents suffer from some of the highest rates of asthma, lung disease and certain types of cancer in the state.
We need to know exactly what's going into the air around factory farms in Maryland in order to protect people's health.
That's why the Community Healthy Air Act would require the state to monitor air pollution coming directly from chicken factory farms and assess the health risks to people living nearby. It would also require transparent recommendations to lawmakers to improve air quality.
Urge your legislators to stand up for Marylanders' health and support the Community Healthy Air Act.
