Attacks on Minnesota clean water must stop now
Dear Minnesota Legislators and Governor,
I am alarmed by the number of bills that would weaken, suspend, or eliminate the protective environmental regulations for Minnesota’s treasured water resources.
Attacking Minnesota’s lakes, rivers, and streams and granting special favors for industry and polluters are not what Minnesotans want, and these attacks will not provide for the wise, long-term stewardship of our natural resources.
This attack on Minnesota clean water must stop now!
Polluters are using the state of our economy and job creation as an excuse to weaken the laws and standards that protect our water.
Please oppose any weakening of existing water policies, specifically OPPOSE those that:
- Weaken water quality standards, jeopardizing natural wild rice with additional mining pollution
- Allow legislative interference with agency oversight and rulemaking, and
- Put our waters at risk from phosphorus released by wastewater treatment plants and other pollution sources
Our water is a cherished natural resource and a legacy we leave our children. Thank you for standing up for Minnesota's future by protecting our water.
