TMLIA signs letter in response to request for relaxed phosphorus standards

Operating in the often contentious world of policy, TMLIA's first priority to members is our mission of protecting water quality.  That is why the Executive Board unanimously voted to have TMLIA, as an entity, included as a signer in response to the recent letter proposing relaxing phosphorus limits for point sources.

 

Because TMLIA operates under civic governance standards, we strictly refrain from promoting a particular candidate or political party while still remaining politically astute. Therefore, TMLIA carefully considers official stances and the other organizations associated with them.  When acting for the organization as a whole, the Executive Board clearly recognizes, with heavy responsibility, that we represent many members with varied backgrounds and opinions, not our own individual interests. 

 

We greatly respect the Executive Board member's individual efforts to carefully consider all viewpoints and research the topic in the brief time allowed before formulating their descision. This was a complex, but important issue, and was approached with the upmost seriousness.


The original letter and the prompted response are included here.
