Washington, D.C. — Following the release of Senator Amy Klobuchar’s Plan to Tackle the Climate Crisis, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from SVP of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld: 

“We applaud Senator Amy Klobuchar for building on her strong record on the climate crisis with a substantive climate plan that includes legislation within her first 100 days to achieve 100% net-zero emissions by 2050, immediate action to restore and expand the Clean Power Plan, an end to fossil fuel subsidies, and major investments in clean energy and infrastructure. It is important that the Senator has pledged to make sure frontline communities most directly experiencing the effects of climate change are a key part of all decision making related to climate policy. The next president must prioritize action on climate beginning on day one of their presidency and every day throughout.”
