Washington D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect pro-environment candidates, announced today the endorsement of Josh Harder for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives from California’s 9th Congressional District.
“Representative Josh Harder has fought hard to combat the devastating impacts from climate change experienced by Californians across the state, including drought, wildfires, and crop loss on farms,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “LCV Action Fund is proud to support his campaign for re-election because we know he will continue to fight for the transformational climate investments we need in clean energy, justice, and good-paying jobs for all communities.”
“Protecting our planet isn’t negotiable. For our families here in the Central Valley, polluted air and water are already hurting our kids and our way of life,” said Rep. Josh Harder. “Proud to receive the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund’s endorsement. We have lots of work ahead.”
A member of the Committee on Appropriations and the Committee on Agriculture, Representative Harder introduced the Future of Agricultural Resiliency and Modernization Act, which would help farmers more effectively fight climate change. LCV’s Deputy Legislative Director Madeleine Foote noted at the time that Harder’s FARM Act is “an important piece to solving the climate crisis by acknowledging the critical role farmers, farm workers, and the agricultural sector must play in tackling climate change.” Rep. Harder’s leadership in working to provide farmers with the tools they need to reduce their carbon footprint, improve soil health, air and water quality, and resilience in the agriculture sector will be vital as we continue dealing with the impacts of the climate crisis. Rep. Harder earned a 100% on LCV’s recently released 2021 National Environmental Scorecard.
