HF 846: Remove provisions to suspend water quality rules

Provisions in the omnibus environment bill would suspend water quality standards and require additional legislative review. This duplicative review is expensive, would delay implementation, and inject politics into water quality protection. A proposed amendment eliminates the provisions for duplicative legislative review and reallocates funding to core conservation programs like AIS prevention, forestry, and parks and trails.

What Would Happen?

Water quality rules are not suspended and core conservation programs are funded instead.

Water quality rules are suspended.

How The House Voted
