Urge Them to Support S. 1140: the Federal Water Quality Protection Act

An Environmental Protection Agency water rule vastly expands federal jurisdiction for areas required to obtain Section 404 building permits. This will worsen an already huge backlog, making it much more difficult and costly for home builders to provide safe and affordable housing.

On Wednesday, Nov. 4, the Senate is expected to vote on the Federal Water Quality Protection Act (S. 1140), legislation that will overturn this rule and bring sanity to the federal permitting process. Learn more here.

Passage of this legislation is essential to achieve a federal permitting process that is easy to understand, timely and focused on meaningful protection for our nation’s water resources.

What Can You Do to Help? ACT NOW!

The best solution to overturn the rule is for Congress to act. The House approved similar legislation earlier this year (H.R. 1732, the Regulatory Integrity Protection Act). Through the collective grassroots efforts of the entire Federation, NAHB has been working for months to get this bill to the Senate floor. Our hard work has paid off, but we need your help to get this legislation across the goal line.

With the Senate vote quickly approaching, time is of the essence.

Call to Action

Urge your Senators to Support S. 1140, the Federal Water Quality Protection Act.
