Washington, D.C. —  In response to EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s delay of the Clean Water Rule, which protects drinking water for 1 in 3 people in this country, League of Conservation Voters Legislative Representative Madeleine Foote released the following statement:

“After a hurried review and a comment period purposefully hidden from the public during the rush of the holiday season, Scott Pruitt’s delay of the Clean Water Rule is another galling attack on the clean water our families and communities depend on. Pruitt’s actions demonstrate just how scared the Trump administration is that these commonsense safeguards would go into effect and actually disprove their bogus apocalyptic claims. The administration’s constant assault on our waterways is outrageous and we will continue to defend our right to clean, safe drinking water for all communities.”
