Attacking Clean Water: Alabama's Congressional Delegation in Action

As you may know, all but one of Alabama Congressional Representatives (Terri Sewell, Dist. 7 was the exception) voted with the majority of the U.S. House of Representatives last week to severely reduce the effectiveness of the 40 year old Clean Water Act, by passing H.R. 2018, which would enable the 50 states to create and enforce their own rules concerning water quality.

TAKE ACTION:  Contact Congressional Representative and express your feelings about the vote on this bill (H.R. 2018).
