TAKE ACTION: Comment on Proposed Tulloch Rule On-Line
At the end of September, the National Clean Water Network launched their new on-line advocacy center. Please refer to article number 7 for an explanation of all the features offered by this great product. We are encouraging CWN members to submit comments on the proposed rule to close the Tulloch loopholea loophole in the Clean Water Act that has lead to the destruction of more than 20,000 acres of wetlands and the degradation of hundreds of miles of streams in just the past two years. Comments supporting plugging the loophole are needed by October 16, 2000! If you are submitting your own detailed comments already, thats great. If youd like to provide your members with a quick, on-line way to submit comments, please go to our web site at www.cwn.org and click on wetlands. There you will find an e-mail version and a print version of the sample comments we sent out in August. Lets send a message to the Corps that we want the loophole closed once and for all!
The proposed rule is available on-line at www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs/fedreg/frcont00.html (access August 16ths Federal Register publication, page 50108).
