WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters Senior Vice President for Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld released this statement following reports that Congressman Culberson could offer an amendment to the Energy and Water Appropriations bill today that would block the federal government from considering the economic impacts of climate change:

“Every President since Ronald Reagan has understood that when the government takes action, we should understand the costs and the impacts. Last year’s climate-fueled extreme weather cost every taxpayer in America. The costs of climate change are real and harming communities across the nation. Congressman Culberson should drop this extreme anti-science amendment.”
