WASHINGTON, DC –(ENEWSPF)–January 21, 2016. Senate Republicans failed to advance a motion to overrule President Obama’s veto of a bill designed to halt the finalized Clean Water Rule.
In response, Dalal Aboulhosn, Senior Washington Representative for the Sierra Club, released the following statement:
“Senate Republicans have launched yet another failed attack on clean water, this time at a moment when the entire nation is focused on the dangers that dirty water poses to our communities and our families. President Obama defended clean water by vetoing this toxic resolution the first time, and now that an override has failed to advance in the Senate, it is even more clear that Congressional Republicans will fail at undermining these essential safeguards.”
