UPDATE: Clean Water Protection Act Gains Support

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

The Clean Water Protection Act, HR 1837, was introduced last month with 45 original cosponsors.

Since then, more than two dozen additional members of Congress have recognized the need to protect our communities and rivers from pollution caused by mountaintop removal. The bill, which restores a key protection of the Clean Water Act, now has 71 cosponsors.

On the bill are returning cosponsors and first-time supporters, Democrats and Republicans, freshmen and senior representatives. 71 cosponsors is great progress, but its not enough. We need to keep up this momentum and beat our past record of 172 cosponsors.

Is your member of Congress a cosponsor? Write your Rep. now and urge them to cosponsor the Clean Water Protection Act!
