Clean Water Action Endorses Haley Stevens for Congress

Monday, April 27, 2020

LANSING- Today, Clean Water Action announced its endorsement of Haley Stevens for Michigan’s 11th Congressional District.

“We need forward thinking leaders like Haley Stevens representing us in Washington. Congresswoman Stevens believes it is paramount that we protect the Great Lakes and address the climate crisis." said Mary Brady-Enerson, Clean Water Action Michigan Director. "We know that Representative Stevens will continue her work on climate and will stand up against the Trump administration’s dirty water agenda.”

In her first term in Congress, Representative Stevens used her background in the auto industry to push back against EPA cuts to the CAFÉ standards for vehicle emissions and worked to expand the use and availability of electric vehicles to further reduce carbon pollution. She also helped to ensure funding to address PFAS contamination was included in the National Defense Authorizations Act.

“Congresswoman Stevens understands the obligation to protect our drinking water and environment in a state that is surrounded by 20% of the world’s fresh drinking water,” said Brady-Enerson. “We are proud to endorse her campaign and look forward to continuing to work with her in Congress. The choice is clear - Haley Stevens for Michigan’s 11th congressional district.”
