Letter Regarding Senate's FY2017 Energy and Water Appropriations Bill

April 29, 2016

The undersigned environmental groups express concerns with the FY2017 Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies appropriations bill (H.R. 2028). It includes provisions that promise lasting, problematic consequences for our nation’s nuclear waste program, does not responsibly promote proper use of our water resources, and fails to properly invest in clean energy innovation. This bill also includes harmful policy riders in an attempt to circumvent regular legislative order.
