Anne L., OH

On December 20, 2009, I received a bilateral lung transplant as the result of having pulmonary hypertension caused by a birth defect.

My life has been saved. I have been given a second chance, so I don't want the government to ruin the air we breathe by weakening air quality standards so that big businesses can make more money.
