Members of the WA delegation speak out on EPA cuts
Three dozen members of Congress are calling on Donald Trump not to eliminate money for Puget Sound.
Trumps budget blueprint released last month eliminates the Environmental Protection Agency’s geographic programs to clean up Puget Sound, the Great Lakes, Chesapeake Bay, and other water bodies.
The lawmakers say the bodies of water are crucial economic drivers that support millions of jobs and billions of dollars in economic impact across the country.
Washington US Representatives Derek Kilmer, Denny Heck, and Dave Reichert are among those who signed a bipartisan letter to the president this week.
