As you’ll see in our Scorecard, Republicans in Congress have prioritized corporate polluters and campaign donors over the public every chance they have had. They have voted to slash agency budgets, undermine the science used to develop safeguards, and more.

RE: Docket ID No. EPA–HQ–OLEM–2018–0024 Clean Water Act Hazardous Substances Discharge Prevention Action
Dear Acting Administrator Wheeler,
On behalf of the undersigned 187 organizations and our millions of members and supporters across the country, we oppose the Trump administration’s attempt to repeal the 2015 Clean Water Rule and urge the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to withdraw this proposed repeal.
We need a Supreme Court Justice that will combat environmental racism and fight for environmental justice for all, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, citizenship status, or income – not someone who will bar the courthouse doors on them.

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.
