Apr 26, 2017

David Willett, 202-454-4598,

Washington, DC: In response to Senators Portman and Heitkamp’s introduction of a bill today to drastically weaken the ability of our government to enforce the laws that keep people safe and healthy, League of Conservation Voters Deputy Legislative Director, Alex Taurel, issued the following statement:

“This legislation would rig the system so corporate lobbyists can lower standards that protect the public health and safety of all people in this country. We urge members of congress to oppose this and other dangerous efforts to make it harder to protect the air we breathe, the water we drink and the lands we cherish.”
