WASHINGTON, DC –League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski released this statement on Senator Chuck Schumer and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's leadership during the Senate's series of all-night speeches pressing for action on climate change:

“We’re thrilled that Senators Schumer and Gillibrand joined with 29 colleagues from across the country to stand up to corporate polluters and give a voice to New Yorkers demanding action on climate change.  New York is already seeing climate impacts, including stronger storms, more extreme heat waves, and rising sea levels. We congratulate Senators Schumer and Gillibrand on their leadership and will continue working with them to push for action to confront the climate crisis.”
