LCV Statement On House Coastal Drilling Vote

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Chuck Porcari, (202) 785-8683 June 30, 2006  

WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Legislative Director Tiernan Sittenfeld today issued the following statement after the House of Representatives  voted to open huge new tracts of America’s coastal waters to drilling:

"Once again the House of Representatives failed to seize an opportunity to pursue a forward looking energy policy that will build a new economy around renewable energy and energy efficiency. Instead, they opted for the same old tired policies that benefit Big Oil and no one else. LCV will work to keep the action of the House from becoming law, and we will hold those who voted for offshore drilling accountable."
