The “Review of Existing Regulations” is asking the wrong questions.

Clean Water Action and Clean Water Fund strongly object to the premise behind Executive Order 13777 and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) “Review of Existing Regulations.” Regulations, including environmental and health protections, are not holding back our country. On the contrary, regulations that protect our water, air and health are some of the most powerful driving forces for our economy and our communities. Whether it is water for drinking, fishing, swimming, boating, irrigation, food production, brewing or other industries, clean water is the essential input. It is the foundation of healthy communities.
