PROVIDENCE- Clean Water Action is pleased to announce its endorsement of US Congressman David Cicilline in the primary election on Tuesday, September 13th.
If we are to continue improving our quality of life and economic well-being here in Rhode Island, it is vital to have elected officials who make protecting our environment and natural resources a top priority. Clean Water Action is very pleased to endorse in the September 13th primary election:
Rhode Islanders have a huge opportunity strengthen the state's economy, create jobs, preserve open space, and protect clean water. On November 8th, voters will decide whether to enhance the quality of life in the Ocean State by voting YES on Question 6, the Green Economy Bond.
Toxic chemical flame retardants are added to a variety of common household products like upholstered furniture, bedding, car seats and high-chair pads. These chemicals have been linked to health hazards like cancer, neurological deficits, impaired fertility and learning disabilities.
Clean Water Action actively supported legislation dealing with Rhode Island’s energy future, toxic chemicals in consumer products, and protecting and preserving open spaces and recreational areas vital to the health of our communities and the growth of tourism and hospitality industries.
Clean Water Action, as a member of the Energize Rhode Island coalition, is fighting for a solution that can ease the environmental impact, while helping residents and businesses in the Ocean State adapt to changes intensified by the burning of fossil fuels.
