WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement ahead of the House of Representatives’ vote today on H.R. 3409, a package of five bills catering to big polluters that severely weakens essential public health safeguards Americans count on:

“The most anti-environment House of Representatives in history will spend its final day in session before the election passing legislation that is an assault on health and environmental safeguards Americans count on.  Instead of addressing the serious challenges facing the American people, House members will vote on this extreme legislation catering to the big polluters that fund their campaigns—namely, their insistence that we remove commonsense limits on the mercury, carbon, and other pollution they can dump into the air we breathe and the water we drink.”
