As a Republican lawmaker, Rep. Burns is not alone in dispelling the stereotype that his party is weak on the environment. “I do not believe that any American, Republican or Democrat, is anti-environment,” he said. “No matter your politics, we can all agree that clean water, clean air and clean wildlife habitats are all good things which we should strive for. Ultimately, we just have to craft balanced policies that respect businesses and the environment.”
Georgia Water Coalition’s 2018 Clean 13 report highlights the efforts of individuals, businesses, industries, non-profit organizations and state and local governments who are protecting our water, restoring the health of Georgia’s waterways and preserving them for future generations.
The Coalition is a consortium of more than 250 conservation and environmental organizations, hunting and fishing groups, businesses, and faith-based organizations that have been working to protect Georgia’s water since 2002.
