As Chris Hunt (Communications Director for Trout Unlimited and AFFTA Board Member) recently blogged, the Clean Water Act was in danger. On Friday we learned that a bill moving through the Senate Appropriations Committee would derail the Clean Water Act and, in turn, put our fisheries and drinking water at risk.
Within hours our industry mobilized and called/emailed/tweeted our elected federal officials. We posted alerts on Facebook and Twitter. We gave our fellow anglers a nudge to do the same. And our efforts worked!
It was announced late last night that the proposed amendment is now dead. However the work is not over. Comment period for the Clean Water Act is ongoing into July. Submit your comment TODAY and continue to stand up for our fisheries. Together we DO make a difference!
