Statement of Joan Mulhern, Senior Legislative Counsel on U.S.PIRG's report "America's Environment at Risk"

On July 2, U.S. PIRG released a report documenting how the Bush administration's efforts to weaken environmental protections is threatening the places Americans go to vacation. Joan Mulhern spoke about Clean Water Act rollbacks at the press conference announcing the report.

Polluting America's environment is unpatriotic and no way to celebrate the 4th of July. What we really need from the Bush Administration is a Declaration of Independence from the unhealthy political influence of the industrial polluters that are fouling our nation's waterways.
