January 2012 marked the end of a two-year legislative session. With your help, Clean Water Action won several victories for clean drinking water during that session. Our wins included a bill affirming that state agencies must recognize the Human Right to Water and others that help small communities get access to drinking water and wastewater treatment funds. We helped end the use of toxic bisphenol-A (BPA) in children’s products and ensured that lead will no longer be used in children’s jewelry sold in California.
