Washington, D.C. – League of Conservation Voters Senior Vice President for Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld released the following statement on the swearing in of new U.S. senators from Alabama and Minnesota:

“We congratulate Doug Jones and Tina Smith and look forward to working with them to protect our air, water, lands and wildlife. With the most anti-environmental president in our nation’s history in the White House, it’s more important than ever that the Senate continues to provide a green firewall of defense. We’re confident that Senators Jones and Smith will do just that.”
