Washington, DC - Congress is failing the American people on protecting the environment and communities, according to Clean Water Action's Scorecard for the 113th Congress. In 2013 and 2014, the US House of Representatives voted numerous times to block progress in restoring protections to small streams and wetlands and safeguarding communities from toxic coal ash. While few of these measures passed the Senate, that may no longer be the case after the upcoming election.
(Plymouth, MA) – On Tuesday, Clean Water Action members gathered at Brewster Gardens in Plymouth to endorse Matt Patrick (D-Falmouth)—an environmental champion who has devoted his life to protecting our waters, growing the green economy, and taking action on climate change. As a community activist, nonprofit leader, small business owner and former five-term State Representative, Matt Patrick has engaged his community at every level and is currently running for the Plymouth and Barnstable State Senate seat.
