  • Happy 49th Birthday to the #CleanWaterAct! Since 1972, the Clean Water Act has helped ensure safe drinking water, protected America’s lakes, streams, wetlands, & tributaries from pollution, & preserved our national resources for current & future generations. #CWA49
  • For 49 years, the Clean Water Act has protected America’s waterways from pollution. In the aftermath of the recent oil spill off our SoCal coast, this #CWA49 anniversary is a reminder of how imperative it is that we continue to protect our environment.
  • 49 years ago, bipartisan majorities in Congress got the Clean Water Act passed into law — protecting our nation’s lakes, streams, shorelines, and public health for decades. But we must continue making progress. Everyone deserves clean water. #CWA49 waterkeeper.org → The Bipartisan Beginnings of the Clean Water Act
  • The #CleanWaterAct reminds us how far we've come to protect public health & how much more needs to be done to #ProtectCleanWater for all. Passing my Clean Water Infrastructure Resilience & Sustainability Act would make water treatments systems more resilient to #climatechange.
  • For 49 yrs, the #CleanWaterAct has been the bedrock of our environmental laws, putting in place critical safeguards to protect public health & our environment. We must build on this law so we can continue cleaning up our waterways for future generations to enjoy.
  • For 49 years, the #CleanWaterAct has safeguarded our most valuable resource. Now, more than ever, we must continue to protect this historic legislation and invest in #AZ01 water infrastructure to ensure all Americans have access to safe, clean water.
  • The #CleanWaterAct reminds us how far we've come to protect public health & how much more needs to be done to #ProtectCleanWater for all. Passing my Clean Water Infrastructure Resilience & Sustainability Act would make water treatments systems more resilient to #climatechange.
  • As we celebrate 49 years of the #CleanWaterAct & its crucial waterway protections, we must keep pushing to #ProtectCleanWater access for all Oregonians. The bipartisan infrastructure bill will make the largest investment in clean drinking water & sewer programs in U.S. history.
  • Every neighborhood deserves to have clean water. As we celebrate 49 years of the #CleanWaterAct, we must continue to #ProtectCleanWater for ALL communities and future generations.
  • I'm encouraged by @EPA’s plan to address #PFAS contamination. These forever chemicals pose a very real threat to public health and the environment. I look forward to hearing more from @EPAwater Assistant Administrator Radhika Fox this week as she comes before @EPWCmte.
  • Today the Biden administration announced its #PFAS Roadmap. I’m eager to work with @EPA to address the “forever chemicals” in our drinking water, air, and food supply. Action is needed to safeguard the health of our communities and our environment. (1/3) washingtonpost.com → Biden administration moves to curtail toxic ‘forever chemicals’
  • It’s been 49 years since the Clean Water Act became law. My hometown of Flint knows the importance of clean, safe drinking water. That’s why I'm fighting to clean up toxic #PFAS chemicals in our water, replace all lead service lines and protect our #GreatLakes.
  • The #FreedomToVote Act will create a democracy that works for all Americans. It is crucial for the Senate to pass this legislation quickly for Florida to protect the right to vote, end the dominance of dark money in politics, and prohibit partisan gerrymandering.
  • Sen. Charles E. (Chuck) Schumer (D-NY) on the #FreedomToVote Act: "The right to vote is the beating heart of any democracy. I know we can both protect our elections and empower all Americans to have their voices heard – and I hope we can do so together across the aisle."
  • The #FreedomToVote Act will restore the promise of democracy for all Americans. The Senate must pass this legislation to protect the fundamental right to vote, end the dominance of dark money in politics and stop partisan gerrymandering.
  • The Senate has an opportunity and obligation to stop the voter suppression laws and extreme partisan gerrymandering that present an existential threat to our democracy. Proud to have joined my friend Rep. Colin Allred (D-TX-32) in calling on the Senate to protect the vote and our republic.
  • The fight for voting rights is more important than ever. We need to pass the #FreedomToVoteAct to make sure all Americans – no matter what zip code they live in – have the freedom to vote safely and securely.
  • Right now, corruption in our system allows politicians to pick their voters instead of voters to pick their politicians.   We can change that with the #FreedomToVoteAct.   Make elections fair. Get big money out of politics. Give the American people back their power.
  • #BuildBackBetter & #CleanWater: The #BuildBackBetterAct would help more Americans access clean water by fully replacing lead service pipes that contaminate drinking water, helping ensure access to clean water in rural areas & tribal lands, & improving water storage nationwide.
  • I applaud the Biden administration for taking action to protect #CleanWater and remove dangerous forever chemicals from our water. I’m working to pass legislation that provides needed investments in America’s water infrastructure.
  • Congress must: ✅Close the racial #WealthGap. ✅#ActOnClimate NOW. ✅Pass @POTUS Biden's #BuildBackBetter Agenda. That's how we can ensure #CleanWater access for ALL.
