As a part of the Clean Budget Coalition, we, the undersigned organizations write to ask you to oppose the House FY 2019 “minibus” packaging the Financial Services & General Government and Interior & Environment appropriations bills together.
The Senate Environment and Public Works committee meets today for a hearing on Chairman Barrasso’s draft legislation entitled the “Endangered Species Act Amendments of 2018,” a bill that would more aptly be named the “Eliminating Species Act.”
As you begin consideration of H.R. 5895, we write on behalf of our millions of members, to urge you to produce a bill that increases investment in clean energy, decreases our dependence on fossil fuels, responsibly handles nuclear waste disposal and safeguards America’s waters, oceans, wildlife, and climate.
There were plenty of signs before 2017 started that the year would be one wild ride. We braced for the worst and were surprised only by the ferocity and relentless pace of attacks on our water and health coming out of the Trump Administration and Congress. Yet, outside of the political sphere, Americans remain unified in their support of clean water. Almost without exception, a solid majority of people in all demographic groups, in all parts of the country, regardless of party affiliation, care about our water and want to see it protected, now and for future generations.
