Jane Harman on Clean Air & Water
"'Just four years ago the EPA found that 70 percent of California's rivers and streams were polluted. We must uphold the integrity of the Clean Water Act and continuing to improve water quality in the nation's rivers, lakes, and coastal waters.' Jane Harman fought efforts to roll back water treatment standards, weaken water pollution control regulations, lowering treatment requirements for toxic pollution. She voted against limiting the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to enforce certain anti-pollution laws including regulations on emissions from industrial facilities and from oil and gas refineries. Jane Harman voted to restore $42.1 million for research and development into clean and renewable energy sources to replace California's 1,000 aging and polluting power plants. Jane Harman supports a regional approach to transportation issues, including airport expansion, including public transit alternatives to reduce traffic and overcrowding on California's highways."
