On Monday, February 28th, 2018, Great Rivers staff attorney Bob Menees testified in front of the Missouri House of Representatives Rules- Administrative Oversight Committee against HB 1973. The bill would significantly weaken the Missouri Clean Water Law by limiting the State’s ability to enforce against water contaminant sources and to prevent pollution before it happens.
The Committee voted against the bill 8-1 on February 28th, sending it back to the Conservation and Natural Resources Committee.
