Action Alert: Tell House leadership to pass the Salt Bill [CLOSED]

Deicing salts applied to parking lots and walkways can melt snow and ice and keep us safe in winter. However, excess salts eventually wash into waters — where they harm aquatic life.
Salt is a permanent pollutant, and just one teaspoon of road salt pollutes five gallons of water. That's why passing chloride pollution legislation is a major priority this year.
This chloride legislation has already made it through all House committees, and it’s waiting for a full floor vote. Tell the House it’s time to act on this issue to reduce salt contamination in our water.
Please send a message to the House of Representatives Democratic leadership* and bill author asking them to pass Rep. Fischer’s Salt Bill (HF 1502).
