From this press release from Trout Unlimited:
_The U.S. House of Representatives voted yesterday to approve sweeping, harmful changes to the nation's bedrock water-quality protecting law, the Clean Water Act. In a 239-184 vote, the House passed H.R. 2018, a bill that will adversely affect waterways across the nation. H.R. 2018, dubbed the The Clean Water Cooperative Federalism Act of 2011, purports to strengthen "cooperative federalism" by giving the states more control over the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Clean Water Act oversight. In fact, the bill undermines the federal-state partnership on which the Clean Water Act is based. Introduced less than four weeks ago, the House of Representatives held no legislative hearings on the bill and rushed to approve it, apparently to avoid giving it the scrutiny it deserves.
_"..."This bill would undermine the use and enforcement of water quality standards, and allow our waters to become dumping grounds," said Jan Goldman-Carter, wetlands and water resources counsel for the National Wildlife Federation. "Not only would our country's waters be at risk, but fish and wildlife would become collateral damage of this dangerous legislation," Goldman-Carter said.
