WASHINGTON, DC – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement ahead of introduction this afternoon of Senators Boxer’s (D-CA) and Sanders’ (I-VT) legislation to combat climate change and invest in clean energy. This follows LCV’s release of nationwide polling yesterday showing strong public support for action on climate change:

“This legislation is a significant step in the right direction. It should be as unacceptable to spew toxins in our air as it is to throw garbage in our streets. That’s why this bill cuts down on dangerous air pollution by pricing carbon and using revenues to make historic investments in clean energy. Senator Boxer and Senator Sanders are showing the kind of strong leadership we need to win the fight against climate change.”
