ELPC Defends Iowa’s Clean Water Standards

ELPC is defending Iowa’s clean water standards from a legal challenge by the farm bureau. The farm bureau attempted to subpoena private communications related to the clean water standards from the Iowa Environmental Council. ELPC argued that IEC’s first amendment rights protected them from this intrusive subpoena. On October 13, the judge ruled in our favor and agreed that IEC could not be forced to turn over private communication. As this case continues, ELPC will work to uphold clean water protections and protect the rights of our environmental colleagues in the Midwest. Read an earlier post about this case.
