LCV Statement On Continued MAGA House Republican Giveaway to Big Polluters

May 1, 2024

Washington, D.C.— In response to today’s House passage of H.R. 6285, which is a continued giveaway to Big Polluters, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Conservation Program Director America Fitzpatrick:

“Extreme MAGA Republicans are continuing to put Big Polluters over people and attack progress to tackle the climate crisis, pollution, and environmental injustice. The Biden-Harris administration took historic action during Earth Month to continue delivering on the most ambitious conservation and clean energy agenda ever, including finalizing new protections for a record 13 million acres of the Western Arctic. We are disappointed but not surprised by extreme MAGA Republicans giving extreme handouts to Big Polluters with their relentless attempts to roll back the Biden-Harris administration’s historic progress to protect our communities, public lands, and clean air and water for future generations.”

Earlier this week, LCV sent a letter to the House to oppose H.R. 6285, H.R. 3397, H.R. 3195, H.R. 2925, H.R. 764, and H.R. 615. LCV will strongly consider including votes on these bills in the 2024 National Environmental Scorecard.
