Puget Sound ‘S.O.S.’ Act announced by congressmen -KING


A push by Kilmer and Denny Heck to get proper funding and awareness to Puget Sound Recovery. This is to help us be prioritized on a par with Chesapeake Bay.

…. Congressmen Derek Kilmer and Denny Heck decided the Sound needs emergency help. At the 23rd Salmon Homecoming on Saturday morning, they announced their plan to present a new bill to Congress, called PUGET SOS. They will introduce it to the U.S. House next week…. The bill would define Puget Sound as a nationally significant body of water under the Clean Water Act. It would create a Puget Sound Recovery Program Office in the EPA. It also protects the future of tribal treaty fishing rights. Alison Morrow reports. (KING)
