Bad bills have smelly consequences

In 2011, Tom Reed opposed funding needed sewers because the work was on the Mexican side of the border. The consequences affect the California side–now sewage in the Tijuana River is a problem in Southern California.

….

In 2013, Tom had no problem with funding for improvements around Chautauqua Lake which is in NY-23.

Coral Davenport, writing in the New York Times, reports more recently:

The clean water rule, completed by the Obama administration in spring 2015, was issued under the 1972 Clean Water Act. It gives the federal government broad authority to limit pollution in major bodies of water, like Chesapeake Bay, the Mississippi River and Puget Sound, as well as in streams and wetlands that drain into those larger waters.

The Trump Administration reportedly plans to rescind this.
