Stopping Mountaintop Removal: 101!

Posted by JW Randolph | July 19, 2011 at 1:25 pm


Its official! 101 cosponsors of the Clean Water Protection Act!

As big coal and their allies in Congress continue to attack, undermine, and gut public health and environmental protections, Appalachian Voices, the Alliance for Appalachia, NRDC and others continue to play offense by promoting the bipartisan Clean Water Protection Act (HR 1375). This bill would make it illegal to dump toxic waste from mountaintop removal mines into our headwater streams in Appalachia.

This week HR 1375 hit 101 cosponsors, and that number is continuing to grow as more Representatives learn about the horrific impacts mountaintop removal is having on the born and the unborn in Appalachia. ! See if your Congressman is a cosponsor below the fold. If they are not, take a moment and ask them to cosponsor of the Clean Water Protection Act (HR 1375).
