Menendez on Trump Admin’s Repeal of the Clean Water Rule

  
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) released the following statement on the Trump Administration’s repeal of the Clean Water Rule:

“Only in the Trump Administration would it be acceptable to side with polluters to end vital protections, exposing our streams and rivers to toxins, ultimately risking the health of millions of Americans. Today’s irresponsible rollback of the Clean Water Rule is a big hit to our environment and human health, and will have lasting impacts on current and future generations. 

“I was blessed to welcome a new granddaughter, Ofelia, in August. I don’t want her or Evangelina to grow up in a world without clean water to drink or clean air to breathe. We can’t keep treating our planet like this, Mr. President.”
