House Drinking Water Hearing on Tuesday, May 25

On Tuesday, May 25th, starting at 11:30 AM EDT, the Subcommittee on Environment and Climate Change of the Committee on Energy and Commerce will hold a hearing via Cisco Webex on potential amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). The hearing is entitled, “The CLEAN Future Act and Drinking Water: Legislation to Ensure Drinking Water is Safe and Clean.” The Committee website lists 10 bills that will be discussed during this hearing. This is a relatively large number of bills for a legislative hearing, which shows the interest on the Hill on moving drinking water legislation through the process this year.
