Jan 8, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement following the retirement announcement from Senator Barbara Boxer, ranking member of the Environment and Public Works Committee and a leader of the Senate Climate Action Task Force. Senator Boxer earned a 100% on LCV’s 2013 National Environmental Scorecard and has a 90% lifetime score:

“Barbara Boxer’s tireless work advocating for clean air, clean water and climate action has helped shape the movement for decades. She’s a fierce defender of public health who has stood up to Big Oil and corporate polluters at every turn. Senator Boxer is an indispensable ally, and we’ll greatly miss her leadership in Congress.”
