thank you representative norton!
Thank you Eleanor Holmes Norton for standing up for clean water in the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. During a Committee debate on a bill (HR 4965) to block Administration progress on closing gaps in Clean Water Act Protection, Rep. Norton offered an alternative amendment. The amendment would have ensured that drinking water was protected.
While the amendment was defeated and the HR 4965 passed, Representative Norton's amendment showed that she's a true Clean Water Leaders who stands for people, not polluters! Stand with Representative Norton and support the President's Clean Water Policies today
