Just an Old Fashioned Phone Call
Call your legislator for the Clean Water Act of 2010 and Stand Up Against Big Oil.
In a last-ditch effort to block the Clean Water Act of 2010, opponents filed a lawsuit on March 25th challenging the Hazardous Substance Tax – and thereby this entire act.
Let’s be clear: this is about threats and dirty politics, not the law.
Please urge your legislators to stand up against these oil industry threats. Call them at 1-800-562-6000 and ask them to pass the Clean Water Act of 2010, HB 3181/SB 6851.
The Hazardous Substance Tax was approved by voters 22 years ago and has been collected without legal challenge this entire time. Law experts have told us that this lawsuit has no merit. The timing of this suit during the special legislative session is designed to intimidate us and the state legislature.
Ask your legislators to stand up against oil industry scare tactics and pass the Clean Water Act of 2010, HB 3181/SB 6851. Call and leave a message for all three of them by calling the hotline right now: 1-800-562-6000.
For months, people across all of Washington have been urging lawmakers to do the right thing for our state - by ensuring that polluters pay their fair share for the state’s biggest water quality problem: toxic stormwater runoff. At the same time, the oil industry has pulled out every trick in the book to avoid paying their share of the pollution cleanup costs. Unfortunately, this is a new low.
With every punch from big oil, you've fought back. In fact, without all your efforts and persistence, we wouldn't be this close. Stand up with us against big oil and be the voice for clean water and green jobs.
