Senator Christopher Bond is going to try again to convince his colleagues in the U.S. Senate to approve the Fishable Waters Act, which would be characterized by local control of waterways. Bond, who was unsuccessful in his previous attempt to get the legislation through, says it would empower people at the local level who have a stake in the rivers and in keeping them healthy. He says there’s a good reason the Fishable Waters Act failed in its first try, it was an amendment to the Clean Water Act, whcih he says is quite controversial. Bond says adding a new provision to the Clean Water Act is like – in his words – throwing a hand grenade into a manure pile … it makes a real mess.
