CLEVELAND — As part of a lobby day organized by Earthjustice, Father Neil Pezzulo visited Washington DC earlier this week to lobby Ohio senators Rob Portman and Sherrod Brown. Father Pezzulo is First Vice President of Glenmary Home Missioners, located in Fairfield, Ohio. The mission was to oppose HR 806/S263 – The Ozone Standards Implementation Act of 2017 andHR5/S951   (Regulatory Accountability Act) which would undermine the Clean Air Act’s ability to continue protecting environmental quality and public health. Father Neil also represented Ohio Citizen Action in a lawsuit last year that successfully moved U.S. EPA to update air pollution limits under the Clean Air Act, which were years overdue.
