LCV President Gene Karpinski Responds to anti-EPA Legislation

04 Mar 2011  |   Daniel Jacobs

In response to today's introduction of anti-EPA legislation by House Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton (MI-06) and Ranking Member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Jim Inhofe (OK), League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski stated:

"After closed door meetings with energy industry lobbyists, it's hardly a surprise that these pro-polluter lawmakers have followed through with legislation in both the House and Senate to protect Big Oil's profits at the expense of public health. Scientists at the EPA, not politicians in Congress, should determine our air pollution limits. We call on members of Congress to strongly oppose this legislation and any other attempt to block, weaken, or delay the continued implementation of the Clean Air Act's necessary public health protections."
