In October of 1972 an amazing thing happened in our nation’s capitol. A bi-partisan Congress overrode a Presidential veto and passed what we know of today as the Clean Water Act. Then President Nixon vetoed the Act stating it was too expensive for industry and would cost American jobs. Sound familiar? But a bi-partisan Congress overrode the veto! Can you imagine this happening today? Not.
