Trump is attacking clean water and putting industry polluters before the health and safety of American families and the water they drink. This is the largest EVER rollback of clean water protections & we should be alarmed by this egregious action taken by the administration.

We must start re-imagining our transportation systems in order to effectively combat congestion. For too long, not enough has been done to modernize our systems to meet the demands of a 21st century economy.
