Pennsylvania has become a hotbed for water privatization, but when corporations control our water, it leads to higher rates, lost jobs, and worse service - all in the name of profit.
Two bills have been introduced into the Pennsylvania General Assembly to require a referendum vote before the sale of a publicly owned water system: HB 2597, sponsored by Rep. John Lawrence and HB 2746, sponsored by Rep. Christina Sappey.
These bills would protect the public and ensure that voters get the right to decide the future of their water systems. We need to stand up against these profiteering water corporations and say: our water, our vote!
Sign below to tell your state legislators to cosponsor and support HB 2597 and HB 2746 to support the rights of water ratepayers.
