Congress is currently considering a proposal to expand the Clean Water Act, but if a recent poll by the National Center for Public Policy Research is any indiction, congressmen may want to think twice. Comments National Center spokesman, David Ridenour:
“Our poll indicates that when voters are asked if they would favor an expansion of the Clean Water Act to include areas that are only sometimes, or rarely, even wet or navigable, which is what is being proposed by Congress, they rejected it by a 46-54 percent margin. Most interesting, self-described independents opposed expanding the Clean Water Act by 12 percentage points, which goes to show that this issue is not especially popular among those who are swing voters.”
