“We all have an obligation to care for this planet,” said Clarke Tucker. “As residents of the Natural State, we have a heightened responsibility to be good stewards of our water, air, and public lands. That is why I am proud to have the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund, and I share their mission to elevate policy that acknowledges and fights climate change and invests in a clean energy economy. I look forward to working with LCV to advance clean energy policy that protects our environment, promotes public health, and boosts our economy.”
