Phoenix, AZ – Following Governor Ducey’s announcement that he will appoint former Senator Jon Kyl to serve in the Senate, the League of Conservation Voters and Chispa Arizona released the following statement from Chispa Arizona Executive Director Laura Dent:


“With this choice, Governor Ducey has let down every Arizonan who wishes to breathe clean air and drink clean water. During his previous tenure in the Senate, Jon Kyl earned an appalling 8% lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard by consistently voting against the best interests of Arizona families. Kyl is leading efforts to confirm a supreme court nominee that puts our environment and public health at risk. We deserve a Senator who will stand up for all Arizonans, including Latinos and other under-represented communities most affected by dirty energy.”
