Clean Water Action plays an active role in the state legislative process. We introduce and sponsor bills to protect our environment and communities, work to stop bills that roll back environmental and environmental justice protections, and provide expertise to decision makers on water, toxics, and community impacts. This year Clean Water Action is sponsoring six bills that will protect the public from toxic chemical exposures and ensure that all Californians have access to safe water. We will also campaign for bills to address the devastating harm to the health and safety of communities
