Reps. Schweikert, Cárdenas, and Aguilar Re-Introduce Bi-Partisan Bill to Crowdsource Environmental Data
Representatives David Schweikert, Tony Cárdenas, and Pete Aguilar re-introduced the Crowd Sourcing of Environmental Data Act of 2019, a bi-partisan bill to incorporate mobile monitoring devices to increase the size, scope, and density of data collected for a cleaner environment. Congressman Schweikert and Cárdenas released the following statements after the bill was re-introduced.
"I am proud to see this legislation be re-introduced. This legislation would put the tracking of air quality into our community members' hands, and would help simplify the process for monitoring the air we breathe. This could create a faster, healthier, and fairer process to reduce bureaucratic red tape and promote safer air quality." said Congressman David Schweikert (AZ-06)
"Coming from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, I remember the days where the smog was so thick that we had to stay inside," Congressman Tony Cárdenas (D-CA) said. "We've come a long way since then, but still have a lot of work to do to ensure we have clean air for our families. I am proud to work with my colleagues to find innovative ways to monitor the air we breathe to ensure our safety today and tomorrow."
