WASHINGTON, DC - Responding to the Minnesota Supreme Court’s decision in favor of Senator Al Franken, League of Conservation Voters Senior Vice President Tony Massaro issued the following statement:
“With vital clean energy and global warming legislation having passed the House, there is no more important time to send Al Franken to the Senate. This committed conservationist will be a strong voice for clean, safe, American energy that puts Minnesotans to work.
“LCV calls on Governor Tim Pawlenty to immediately certify Senator Franken. We hope that Norm Coleman and others will get out of the way and give the people of Minnesota the representation they deserve.”
