Action: Senate Passed the Water Resources Development Act

“I am very glad that the US Senate finally passed a bill that includes federal funding to replace lead contaminated pipes in Flint, Michigan and other cities with lead emergencies.  The bill passed with overwhelming bi-partisan support with a vote of 95 in favor and just 3 opposed; unfortunately one of the votes against the bill came from Utah's own Senator Mike Lee.  My opponent Mike Lee voted against the bill and used a procedural hold to delay this bill. Mike Lee has shown he lacks concern and compassion for the children of our nation.

I do not want children drinking poisoned water and the government should do everything in its power to prevent that from happening.  It's unacceptable that Mike Lee has used his position as a Senator to do everything in his power to block and delay federal funding that would of protected our citizens from contaminated water."
