WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski released this statement in response to extreme proposals by Republican leaders in Congress that would endanger the environment in return for raising the debt ceiling: 

“Congress should pass a bill to raise the debt ceiling that’s clean in every sense of the word. Extreme Republican leadership in the House and Senate shouldn’t be tacking on any anti-environmental riders, especially those that threaten our environment, force approval of Keystone XL and prevent action on climate change. Paying the bills we’ve already incurred shouldn’t lead to more giveaways for Big Oil and corporate polluters.”
