Tester Votes to Protect Montana’s Waterways and Outdoor Economy

Senator: Clean Water is Important to the Montana Way of Life

(U.S. Senate) – Following today’s vote on the Stream Protection Rule, U.S. Senator Jon Tester issued the following statement:

“Clean water gives life to Montana’s crops, livestock, fish, and ultimately our economy. Whether it’s farming and ranching or our booming tourism industry, our economy needs clean water to thrive. As a farmer, I know darn well our crops won’t grow without clean water. And any Montanan will tell you: you don’t fish from polluted streams. Clean water is critically important to our Montana way of life and we need to protect that for the next generation.”
