On behalf of our millions of members and supporters across the country, we urge you to negotiate a clean FY17 spending package that is free of any damaging anti-environmental, anti-science riders. These riders have no place in the appropriations process. They would damage vital public health and conservation safeguards that families across the nation value, and would only serve to inject more unpredictability and complications into an already challenging appropriations process.
Dear Chairman Barrasso, Ranking Member Carper, and members of the Senate
Environment and Public Works Committee:
Clean Water Action, on behalf of our nearly one million members, appreciates the opportunity to provide written comments on the April 26, 2017 hearing, “A Review of the Technical, Scientific, and Legal Basis of the WOTUS Rule.” We respectfully request that this statement, along with our white paper, Putting Drinking Water First:
On behalf of the undersigned conservation and environmental organizations and our millions of members and supporters, we write to express our opposition to the confirmation of Judge Neil M. Gorsuch to a lifetime seat on the United States Supreme Court. Judge Gorsuch is an extreme and unacceptable choice for the Supreme Court, and we urge the Senate to reject his nomination.
We are writing to express our strong opposition to the “EPA Science Advisory Board Reform Act of 2017” (H.R.1431).
On behalf of our millions of members and supporters nationwide, we urge you to oppose H. J. Res. 69, the Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to rescind the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (FWS) Alaska National Wildlife Refuges Rule.
March 16, 2017
On behalf of our millions of members and supporters nationwide, we write to strongly oppose the damaging cuts to conservation, natural resources and environmental programs in the President’s Fiscal Year 2018 budget request.
March 14, 2017
On behalf of the undersigned organizations and our millions of members and supporters, we strongly urge you to oppose S. 21, the “Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act of 2017,” scheduled for markup on March 15, 2015, in the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee. The REINS Act, which has never been subject of a hearing in the Senate, is an extraordinarily extreme measure that would effectively make it impossible to protect the public by shutting down the entire regulatory system.
March 14, 2017
On behalf of the undersigned organizations and our millions of members and supporters, we strongly urge you to oppose S. 34, the so-called Midnight Rules Relief Act of 2017. This bill is designed to make it easier to repeal public safeguards put in place by the Obama Administration. It would amend the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to enable Congress to repeal many regulations at once by packaging them in a single resolution that would get expedited consideration and require only a majority of votes for passage in the Senate.
