Letter to Congressional Appropriators on FY2021 Funding for CDC's Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry

May 05, 2020

To: The Honorable Betty McCollum, The Honorable David Joyce, The Honorable Lisa Murkowski, The Honorable Tom Udall

"We urge you to build upon last year’s additional funding with an additional increase of $12 million for ATSDR in the FY 2021 Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations bill. ATSDR protects the health of our communities in a variety of ways by preventing exposure to harmful contaminants in our soil, water and air; responding to requests from communities across the country to protect people from exposure to harmful levels of substances in the environment; providing funds and support to state and local health departments and supporting environmental health professionals in regional and field offices; and, along with Atlanta-based staff at ATSDR headquarters, experts are ready 24/7 to respond to environmental-health threats from natural disasters, chemical spills and other emergencies."
