In years past, NACo has passed resolutions opposing the Clean Water Restoration Act based on misleading information provided by industry and property rights groups. Members of Congress have cited NACo’s objections as an excuse not to move this critical legislation forward. However, that is all about to change.
This year NACo will consider a “Clean Water for All” resolution that supports the compromise bill passed in the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on June 18th. If NACo adopts this resolution, then the organization can no longer lobby against the Clean Water Restoration Act. This would significantly improve our chance of passing the bill in Congress.
