As the 114th Congress begins this week, let’s take a moment to celebrate the environmental allies elected over the last cycle that are joining the ranks of longtime champions and allies on Capitol Hill. LCV’s 2014 Environmental Facebook features 16 members of the U.S. House and four U.S. Senators who are committed to standing up to polluters and to protecting our environment:

House:                                                                 Senate:

Ruben Gallego (AZ-7)                                           Brian Schatz (HI)

Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11)                                      Ed Markey (MA)

Pete Aguilar (CA-31)                                             Gary Peters (MI)

Ted Lieu (CA-33)                                                  Cory Booker (NJ)

Gwen Graham (FL-2) 

Mark Takai (HI-1)

Katherine Clark (MA-5)

Seth Moulton (MA-6)

Debbie Dingell (MI-12)

Brenda Lawrence (MI-14)

Kathleen Rice (NY-4)

Brendan Boyle (PA-13)                                  

Don Beyer (VA-8)                                            

LCV Action Fund supported these twenty members this past cycle because of their commitment to combating climate change, safeguarding our environment, protecting public health, expanding our clean energy economy, and preserving our public lands and wildlife. Click here to learn more about these elected officials’ backgrounds and a summary of how they answered 10 key environmental questions as part of LCV’s Environmental Facebook. 

We look forward to working with them as well as our returning allies in Congress and the Obama administration to protect our planet for generations to come.
