Target: Republicans in Congress
Demand: Allow clean water rule to pass.
President Obama is set to announce a new clean water regulation that will hold businesses to a higher standard when it comes to pollution and allow the federal government to take a more active role in promoting clean water.
Although many would say it’s a good thing to maintain clean water, the regulation is getting some backlash from Congress. Republicans are generally against the idea as it means more government involvement and intrusion on property owners’ rights. Therefore, the House has passed a bill to block it and the Senate is moving forward with a bill that would require the rule to be changed.
Urge Congress to stop opposing this bill in order to promote clean, healthy water.
President Obama is expected to announce a new clean water rule that would give the federal government a more hands-on role in preventing pollution. This is important as the environment is threatened now more than ever before.
Clean water is key to a healthy environment and we have a responsibility to protect it. We the undersigned urge you not to move forward with bills that would limit the government’s ability to prevent pollution.
