    April Victories for Public Health and Clean Air

    April has brought two major victories in the courts for public health. This week, the Supreme Court upheld the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Cross-State Air Pollution Rule, which will reduce harmful air pollution that blows across state lines.

    The Koch Brothers’ spokesman responded that Steyer’s characterization was “false and disingenuous” because “Koch opposes all mandates and subsidies, even when they exist for businesses in which we operate.” It’s a ...More

    Yesterday, Representative John Sarbanes held a press conference where he highlighted his bill, the Government by the People Act, which will help to “empower millions of everyday Americans to take back their government from big money special interests.” LCV’s Legislative Director Sara Chieffo spoke out in support of the bill, stating “The Government by the People Act seeks to re-establish what our Founders intended—a government that answers to the people, not the super wealthy few.”
