Bill & Vote Activity
Final passage of H.R. 212: Drinking Water Protection Act
Vote Info: This bill amends the Safe Drinking Water Act to provide for assessment and management of cyanotoxins in drinking water. Cyanotoxins, which can cause serious illness or death, are produced as a result of overgrowth of blue-green algae. Agricultural runoff such as sewage or fertilizer dramatically increases the growth of blue-green algae.
