LCV Statement on Former Senator Jim Jeffords

Aug 18, 2014

WASHINGTON DC — League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement today following the passing of former Senator Jim Jeffords (I-VT): 

“Jim Jeffords always put good policy ahead of partisan politics. He was an environmental hero who helped make the Clean Air Act of 1990 a reality and was an early voice on climate change and clean energy legislation. Jim Jeffords showed what’s possible when leaders stand up to polarization and do what’s best for their constituents and our country.”
