Support the Clean Water Restoration Act

1 post in this topic

It's hard to believe, but polluters are actually allowed to

contaminate your drinking water.

Why? Because the Supreme Court and the Bush Administration have

sided with polluters to strip vital protections from the Clean

Water Act. That means that pollutants like E-Coli, bacteria,

mercury, PCBs and dioxin could be contaminating the drinking

water of more than 110 million Americans.

Congress will hold hearings in the coming weeks on the Clean

Water Restoration Act, which would restore the Clean Water Act's

original protections to all bodies of water. Even a handful more

co-sponsors would build the momentum we need to get to winning

votes of 218 in the House and 60 in the Senate.

Will you contact Congress and ask them to support this critical

legislation?

Developers and corporate polluters want to keep dumping

contaminants linked to cancer, birth defects and other health

problems into our water because dealing with chemical waste, oil

spills, and other pollution would cut into their profit margin.

Congress has a choice between standing with polluters or

standing up for the health and well-being of millions of

Americans. No doubt they will be hearing from polluters - they

need to hear from constituents as well.

Don't wait until it's too late - ask your Members of Congress to

support the Clean Water Restoration Act TODAY.

Tens of thousands of LCV supporters have already contacted their

Members of Congress to demand an end to this reckless

contamination. Please add your voice as Congress considers the

Clean Water Restoration Act.

Thank you,

Gene Karpinski
