LCV Issues Statement on Senate GOP Attacks on EPA Clean Water Rule

May 19, 2015

Washington, DC – Today, Senate Republicans held two hearings where they showcased their assault on the EPA and Army Corps’ Clean Water Rule.  In response, LCV Legislative Representative Madeleine Foote issued the following statement:

“Today’s attacks on the Clean Water Rule put these senators at odds with the vast majority of voters, who care about safe drinking water. In addition to being unpopular, the attacks on the rule are completely unfounded, and could put the drinking water of one in three Americans at risk. The latest polling shows nearly 80 percent of voters support moving forward with the rule, while 69 percent would judge their Senator less favorably if they voted to block the rule.”
