The following is a statement from PennFuture President and CEO Jacquelyn Bonomo regarding the passage of Senate Bill 915 on May 27th.
“This common sense legislation represents an important vehicle for clean water in Pennsylvania. We applaud the Senate and leaders like Senator Yaw for passing Senate Bill 915, which seeks to reduce the levels of nitrogen and phosphorous that enter waterways across Pennsylvania,” said Jacquelyn Bonomo, President and CEO of PennFuture. “Thousands of miles of our rivers and streams are polluted with these nutrients, which drastically impacts water quality, aquatic life and recreation opportunities. This fair and reasonable legislation will improve water quality in Pennsylvania for decades to come.”
