Minnesotans Meet with Congressional Delegation to Prioritize Great Lakes Protection and Drinking Water
Clean Water Action Minnesota was in DC to talk about and support the GLRI Act of 2019 and advocated for significantly increasing federal funding for clean water and safe drinking water programs. The GLRI Act would provide stability for Great Lakes funding for at least five years, provide secure and stable funding, and will encourage more state and local governments, as well as private businesses, to invest in protection and restoration across the Great Lakes basin.
If it feels like the oil and gas industry has a leg up when it comes to developing policies that affect our health and the environment – you are not crazy.
That is exactly what has been happening for decades and it’s not an accident. There has been a calculated effort from the industry to leverage its resources to influence policy decisions and to elect favorable candidates to develop those policies.
