LANSING- Today, Clean Water Action announced its endorsement of Debbie Dingell for Michigan’s 12th Congressional District.

“Debbie Dingell is a fearless champion for our Great Lakes because she understands the duty we all have to protect that precious resource.Congresswoman Dingell continues to represent her constituents well by fighting for clean energy jobs and a federal budget that reflects the priorities of Michiganders," said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. “Representative Dingell has been a leader in fighting the Trump administration’s dirty water agenda and other dangerous environmental rollbacks.”
