Kingston: Demonstration Opposing Gutting of Clean Water Act

Background & Information for the Press Conference:

Last week, the Attorney General led a coalition of AGs vowing to oppose President Trump’s Executive Order that guts protections for Clean Water, known as the “Clean Water Rule.” Read more about this announcement here: https://ag.ny.gov/press-release/new-york-ag-schneiderman-leads-coalition-ags-opposing-president-trumps-executive-order.

On Thursday, March 9 at 12:30pm the AG will be in the Kingston area to join local officials and environmental advocates to reiterate this promise to protect New York’s residents by protecting their clean water. The Trump administration has given every indication that they are going to carry out this assault on Clean Water and our environment, so we are standing together to vow to fight these dangerous plans. We are planning on meeting at the Sojourner Truth/Ulster Landing Park by 12:15pm for the 12:30event.

For background, here’s some information on the Clean Water Rule from the NY Times:https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/28/us/politics/trump-epa-clean-water-climate-change.html?_r=0
