  • Tell Gov. to Halt the Factory Farm Industry's Attack on MO's Clean Water Commission

    TAKE ACTION - Citizens should have a voice in protecting our waters. 

    Factory Farms are undermining our rights to clean water and air. The Clean Water Commission is a 7-member citizens' board which holds the authority in Missouri to implement the federal Clean Water Act and Missouri Clean Water Law and certify factory farm permits. A new state law (HB 1713) has removed the legal requirement for public representation on this Commission. While no longer required, the governor can choose to appoint members of the public to this important commission instead of special interests such as the concentrated corporate agriculture industry.
