Clean Water Action Endorses Rachel Hood for Michigan’s 76th State House District

Tuesday, August 25, 2020

LANSING- Today, Clean Water Action announced its endorsement of Rachel Hood for the Michigan State House.

“Throughout her career, Rachel Hood has been an outstanding advocate for protecting our water resources and meeting the challenges of climate change," said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "She has consistently worked to expand green infrastructure, and hold polluters accountable,” concluded Brady-Enerson.

In her first year in office, Representative Hood sponsored a bill to remove the “water-bottling loophole” from the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act. The water bottling loophole is what currently lets Nestle and other large water bottlers export water from the Great Lakes basin as long as it is in containers of 5.7 gallons or less. She received a “positive” rating on Clean Water Action’s midterm scorecard.

“From her days at the West Michigan Environmental Action Council, to her time in the State House so far, Representative Hood has consistently shown that she is ready and willing to advocate for her constituents and all those who call the Great Lakes State home,” said Brady-Enerson. “We are proud to endorse her campaign today and we are excited to continue working with her to protect our most precious natural resource. The choice is clear – Rachel Hood for Michigan State House.”
