Fight Trump Efforts to Weaken Minnesota’s Authority to Protect Clean Water

Now EPA has proposed rules to weaken Minnesota’s authority and the authority of Tribes to protect clean water under their sovereignty – changes that will affect Minnesota’s Boundary Waters, Lake Superior, Red River, and Mississippi River watersheds.
Sign a letter today to oppose EPA rules and speak for our life-giving waters.
