HR 2018 would cut large holes in the safety net. It would give the states veto authority over water quality standard revisions implemented by EPA, and of the use of EPA authority to block harmful projects that destroy fish habitat, such as the Pebble Mine in Bristol Bay Alaska. The states have made great progress in working to implement their shares of the Clean Water Act over its 38 year history, and we would welcome Congressional consideration of a modified role for the states that would increase the effectiveness of the Clean Water Act, not decrease it.
