BEACH BILL SIGN-ON LETTER CLEAN WATER NETWORK

BEACH BILL SIGN-ON LETTER CLEAN WATER NETWORK JUNE 8, 2009 Beach Act Reauthorization Sign-On Letter
To All Clean Water Network Members:
The BEACH Act Reauthorization bill (S. 878), now called the Clean Coastal Environment and Public Health Act, is expected to be marked up later this month (date is still not certain, but might be later this week).
At the request of Senator Frank Lautenberg’s (NJ) staff, NRDC’s Nancy Stoner prepared a sign-on letter of support, to go to all members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, which is fairly self explanatory.
The Senate bill is better than the House analogue in several respects, most importantly, in its funding for remediation, as well as for monitoring, public notification, source tracking and hopefully also (still under discussion) its tighter time frame for rapid testing of beachwater safety.
Click HERE for a copy of the sign on letter.
To sign on, please send your title, name of organization to jharris@nrdc.org, by COB Thursday, June 11.  If you have questions about it, please email Nancy Stoner at NStoner@nrdc.org.
