Strengthening Laws

Baykeeper strengthens laws and policies to defend the Bay

The laws and policies that protect San Francisco Bay aren’t strong enough. Powerful polluters lobby to weaken regulations — and government agencies often don’t have the resources or political will to enforce existing laws.
