ARCSA has launched its “We the People” petition, appealing to the U.S. President to support rainwater harvesting. After 150 names are gathered, the petition will be accessible on the WhiteHouse.gov “We the People” website. Until then, the petition can only be located with this link.
May 13 is the deadline to collect 100,000 names, which would then qualify for an official response from President Obama.
The petition reads as follows:
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION
… to stimulate the emerging rainwater-harvesting industry, creating new jobs in design, installation, education, R&D, sales, plumbing, landscaping, roofing, monitoring and maintenance, which could propel the U.S. to international leadership, with compounding fiscal benefits.
