Benton Harbor deserves access to clean drinking water. The Michigan Dems will keep fighting the Republicans who do not care about the pollutants in your water.
Access to clean drinking water is a right that should be fiercely protected, but instead the Republicans put corporate interests over public health. They have failed the people of Benton Harbor.
The Michigan Dems and Governor Whitmer have made the fight for clean water a priority. Together with President Biden, the Michigan Dems:
- Secured $14 billion through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to strengthen port and waterway supply chains across the Great Lakes and help make the states’ water infrastructure more resilient to climate change.
- Through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the Environmental Protection Agency has allocated Michigan over $213 million to guarantee clean water for households, schools, and small businesses and better protect the Great Lakes.
- Using the Biden-Harris administration’s Lead Pipe and Paint Action Plan to ensure pipefitters and plumbers can lay the groundwork for the next decade of drinking water infrastructure upgrades.
All Michiganders deserve access to clean drinking water. In a state surrounded by the Great Lakes, that should be a no-brainer. The Michigan Dems will keep fighting for clean water for everyone in Benton Harbor!
