Clean Water Protection Act (HR 2169): All 109th co-sponsors back onboard

We are pleased to announce that due to the unprecedented work of 100s and 1000s of people across the country, the Clean Water Protection Act (HR 2169) to fight mountaintop reomval has reached another important milestone.

With the addition of Robert Andrews from New Jersey’s first district, all previous co-sponsors from the 109th Congress have signed back on in the 110th Congress. This brings our grand total to 122 co-sponsors (including Representative Pallone) from California to Maine and Florida to Washington.

An enormous thanks to everyone. Its fun to watch as this effort grows. Please check and see if your Congressman is a co-sponsor. If they are, then please thank them . If not, please give them a call, or write them an email or letter asking them to co-sponsor the Clean Water Protection Act (HR 2169).
