Washington DC – Clean Water Action is appalled that the leadership of the US House of Representatives appears willing to shut down the federal government in order to win passage of budget riders limiting the authority of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and prohibiting funding for Planned Parenthood.
While recent press reports have indicated that the EPA restrictions may no longer be on the table, the House Republican leadership has brought the federal government close to the brink of shutdown over policy issues that should not be part of budget negotiations.
Austin – The environmental organization Clean Water Action has announced its endorsement of the City of Austin's Proposition 1 on this November's ballot. Prop 1 would authorize $600 million in bond money for a startup urban rail line, subject to the condition of receiving federal matching dollars in the same amount. It would also authorize $400 million in road projects.
