Congresswoman Gwen Moore Statement on Two-Year Anniversary of January 6th
Congresswoman Moore released the following statement:
“It has been two years since the deadly, attempted insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Americans will never forget the day that an angry mob attacked police officers and terrorized members of Congress to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Five police officers lost their lives, and more than 140 were injured. I am forever thankful to the brave officers who protected democracy.
Our democracy remains vulnerable because, with increased zeal, Republicans continue to attack it and our institutions so they can push their radical and unpopular agenda, subverting the will of the American people.
Let this day remind us all that the work of democracy is ongoing. It requires both citizens and elected officials to be committed to the ideals of free and fair elections, equal access to the ballot box, and preserving individual liberties. Democrats will continue championing the freedoms that strengthen our democracy and country.”

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed an updated lead and copper rule that will support the removal of America’s lead pipes in ten years. The rule would also impose stricter standards on utilities, lower the level at which water utilities must take certain actions to address lead in water, require utilities to develop and maintain accurate inventories of where lead pipes are located, and require more robust water testing efforts and communication with consumers connected to a lead service line.
