House To Vote on Clean Water Bill

By July 13, 2011Regulations

Later today the House will vote on the Clean Water Cooperative Federalism Act (H.R.2018).  Watch the exciting parliamentary action here.  Here’s coverage from The Hill.

The NAM is key voting this measure, which would  strengthen states’ ability to set water quality standards.  The bill comes amid frustration with the Environmental Protection Agency, which expanded its authority over state water standards and delayed and even revoked Clean Water Act permits, putting billions in economic activity at risk.

UPDATE: The bill passed, 239 to 184.
