Washington, D.C. -- Today the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee introduced the Clean Water for All Act, a bill to repeal the Trump administration’s Dirty Water Rule.

Clean Water Action President and CEO, Bob Wendelgass, released the following statement:

“We wholeheartedly support this shot across the bow of the President’s Dirty Water Agenda and thank Chairman DeFazio and Representative Napolitano for introducing the bill. The Clean Water for All Act recognizes that the quality of our water and health of our communities is non-negotiable and will overturn the Administration’s unscientific, outrageous attack on our nation’s bedrock water protection law. While Trump’s Dirty Water Rule puts polluter profits first, the Clean Water for All Act prioritizes the water we rely on for drinking, swimming, fishing, and so many other critical uses while ensuring that the best available science, not politics, guides our national water policies. We’ll do everything we can to make sure this bill becomes law. We urge all members of Congress to support the Clean Water for All Act and ensure it has broad bi-partisan support like the Clean Water Act did in 1972.”


Since our founding during the campaign to pass the landmark Clean Water Act in 1972, Clean Water Action has worked to win strong health and environmental protections by bringing issue expertise, solution-oriented thinking and people power to the table. We will protect clean water in the face of attacks from a polluter friendly Administration.
