Join Us in Protecting Water Quality in Massachusetts

Clean drinking water is important for everyone. 

As advocates for prevention, Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) has requested funding from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for its sister organization, Silent Spring Institute.  The funding will be used to study exposure to toxic chemicals in drinking water throughout Massachusetts and provide online tools for residents to learn about their drinking water quality.  On Monday, April 10th, the House Committee on Ways and Means released its budget recommendations and Representatives will have the opportunity to add amendments prior to the house debate at the end of the month.  After the House debates, the budget will then move on to the Senate where there will be additional opportunities to have funding added for Silent Spring Institute. MBCC needs your help with the following action to support the passage of the bill, filed by Representative Paul K. Frost (R-Auburn), Bill H.2919 An Act Relative to Drinking Water and Ground Water Research, to establish a research trust fund.
