Clean Water Act – Oh No!~

December 17, 2009

NOTE: A group of 28 Republican lawmakers from Western states told House and Senate leadership yesterday that they "strongly object" to any attempt to move a controversial bill to amend the Clean Water Act. "We strongly object to any attempt to move this legislation as a stand alone bill or as an attachment to a bill, in the Senate or House of Representatives," said a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). "More specifically, we cannot imagine any bill so important that we could support it with the Clean Water Restoration Act attached." A spokeswoman for Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah), one of the letter’s authors, said the letter was prompted by a Friday Washington Times story that quoted Transportation and Infrastructure Committee spokeswoman Mary Kerr saying Chairman James Oberstar (D-Minn.) plans to advance a House companion measure this year. "Congressman Oberstar has told the committee to prepare to move a bill this year," Kerr said.
