Scorecard - the 113th Congress

TWO YEARS AGO, we reported that fundamental public health and environmental protections were under attack in the 112th Congress. The situation has remained largely the same to date in the 113th Congress. 

In 2013 and 2014, the U.S. House of Representatives has voted to block federal agency progress in all of Clean Water Action’s priority campaign areas, including restoring Clean Water Act protection to streams and wetlands and cleaning up toxic coal ash. Similar measures have not been able to pass in the U.S. Senate.

Urgent - Stop Bad Pinelands Nominations on Oct. 16th!

UPDATE! We won! Today, Oct. 16, the Senate Jucidiary Committee voted to HOLD the nominations. Thank you for everyone who took action!

Oct 15, 2014--Remember when the Pinelands Commission voted NO to stop a massive pipeline from being built in the heart of the NJ Pinelands, thus protecting critical land and drinking water resources for generations to come?

Well, now there is a dirty move afoot to replace members who voted against the pipeline with political appointees that would vote yes. Read Clean Water Action's statement here.

Clean Water Action Endorses Mike Martinez for Austin City Mayor

Austin – Clean Water Action has announced its endorsement of Mike Martinez for Austin Mayor. This November's election marks the first time that Austin will select its council members from 10 single-members districts rather than at-large. The mayor will continue to be elected at-large, by voters from across the city.

“Clean Water Action believes that Mike Martinez has accumulated the depth of experience working with city staff and the community to make him uniquely suited to lead the City of Austin at this critical juncture of its history,” said David Foster, Texas Director for Clean Water Action. “He has earned our trust and we encourage our members to vote for him.”
