WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement following the retirement announcement from Congressman Rush Holt, Vice-Chair of the Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition and a member of the Safe Climate Caucus. Congressman Holt earned an impressive 96% lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard:

“Rush Holt has been an incredible champion for the environment. He’s never been afraid to stand up to Big Oil and corporate polluters while fighting against the dirty Keystone XL tar sands pipeline and for action on climate change and conservation. In an era where debates in Congress are all too often dominated by Big Oil’s talking points, he’s been a welcomed voice for the facts, and we’ll miss his leadership in Washington.”
