In October, Ikes from Maryland, Minnesota, Michigan, and Virginia traveled to Washington, DC, to urge their members of Congress to support implementation of the clean water rule. League members shared personal stories highlighting the importance of clean water and healthy wetlands in their lives and to their communities. They talked about the value of clean water based on their experiences canoeing across Minnesota, fishing for smallmouth in Virginia, and advocating for the Great Lakes and Chesapeake Bay. These visits are part of a larger effort by the League to continue educating members of Congress and their staff about how restoring Clean Water Act protections makes sense for the environment, public health, and the outdoor recreation economy.
Every League member and supporter can make this case too! Visit our advocacy Web page and urge your Senators and Representative not to support any bill or amendment that blocks the Army Corps of Engineers or Environmental Protection Agency from implementing the clean water rule.
