WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to the failed motion in the Senate to take up the Congressional Review Act “Resolution of Disapproval” of the Bureau of Land Management’s Methane and Waste Prevention Rule, League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski issued the following statement:

“This is a huge win for our health, our clean air, and our climate, and shows that President Trump’s plans to unravel hard-won environmental protections are not a foregone conclusion. We thank each and every Senator who stood up against big polluters today and defended these commonsense safeguards from methane pollution. The battle for a clean, safe environment is far from over, and we will continue to stay vigilant, but today is a victory for all those who are raising their voice in resistance to the anti-environmental Trump administration, Republican leadership  and Congress.”
