Senate Passes Misguided Resolution Disapproving Biden Administration’s Clean Water Restoration Rule

“A vote for this resolution was a vote for dirtier water”

Statement by Scott Strand

Senior Attorney, Environmental Law & Policy Center

“We are disappointed that the Senate passed a misguided resolution of disapproval that, if it became law, would erase the Biden administration’s new Clean Water Restoration Rule from the books and bar a similar rule in the future.

“This new rule protects important wetlands that are vital to clean water in the Great Lakes and across the region. A vote for this resolution was a vote for dirtier water.

“We are pleased President Biden has committed to stand up for clean water and the Clean Water act and veto this resolution.”
