LANSING- Today, Clean Water Action announced its endorsement of Jon Hoadley for Michigan’s 6th Congressional District.

"We know that in Congress Representative Hoadley will continue standing up for Michiganders and protecting our most valuable natural resource.”

“The administration’s new rule completely undermines the core purpose of the Clean Water Act, which is to restore and maintain the integrity of our nation’s waters. It will put the health of communities throughout the country at risk,” said Jennifer Peters, national water programs director at Clean Water Action. “Even kids understand we all live downstream and that small streams and wetlands are vital to overall health of our drinking water sources. Instead of acting like drinking water matters, EPA is prioritizing polluter profits with this illegal and unscientific rule and standing its mission to protect human health and the environment on its head.”
