WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement following the House of Representatives’ passage of H.R. 6082, the so-called Congressional Replacement of President Obama's Energy-Restricting and Job-Limiting Offshore Drilling Plan:

“The most anti-environmental House of Representatives in history continued its assault on vital safeguards by providing yet another giveaway to Big Oil.  Catering to corporate polluters and promoting the failed energy policies of the past is just one reason why the American public has such disdain for Big Oil’s Congressional allies.  It’s time for the House of Representatives to get to work for the American people by  investing in real solutions that are supported by many pro-environment members of Congress, including fuel efficiency, cleaner fuels, and energy-saving transportation options for transit, cyclists and pedestrians.”
