Congressional hearings in Orlando on Florida's water pollution standards
Tuesday in Orlando there will be a Congressional hearing on Floridaâs water pollution rules. The federal Environmental Protection Agency has imposed numeric nutrient standards on Floridaâs water bodies, but theyâre being challenged by some business groups. Theyâll be well represented at the hearings called by U.S. Representative Cliff Stearns, which concerns Phil Compton, the Tampa Bay regional representative for Sierra Club Florida.
They are organizing a demonstration outside the Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment hearing. It begins at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the University of Central Florida Alumni Center in Orlando.comments powered by Disqus
