Iowa Supreme Court sends clear message to Statehouse on water quality

It’s time for Governor, Lt. Governor and legislators to ‘get a backbone’

Statement by State Senator Janet Petersen of Des Moines:

“The Iowa Supreme Court is sending the Legislature a clear message that it is our job to clean up this mess. Iowans shouldn’t have to wonder if they will have access to clean, affordable drinking water; and they shouldn’t be afraid to let their children and grandchildren swim in our lakes and rivers. More than ever, Iowans are going to demand that Governor Branstad, Lt. Governor Reynolds and all legislators get a backbone and solve Iowa’s water quality problems.”
