Clean Water Restoration Act UPDATE

Clean Water Restoration Act UPDATE

On Thursday, April 2, 2009 Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin introduced the Clean Water Restoration Act of 2009 (S.787).  To read the text of this legislation go to the Library of Congress website and do a bill search for S.787:

Senator Barbara Boxer is an original co-sponsor of the bill, but to date Senator Dianne Feinstein has yet to sign on.  Please contact Senator Feinstein (202-224-3841) TODAY and urge her to become a co-sponsor of this critical legislation!

We also encourage you to use the release of Courting Disaster as an opportunity to write a Letter to the Editor or an Opinion Editorial for your local paper in order to express that Congress must act quickly to pass the Clean Water Restoration Act of 2009.  This legislation would restore federal Clean Water Act protections for all of the waters that were protected before the law was broken.
