LCV Statement on FY16 “Climate Deniers Budget”

Apr 30, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC – In response to the House passage of the Republican Congress’ FY16 budget conference report, LCV Deputy Legislative Director Alex Taurel issued the following statement:

“This “Climate Change Deniers Budget” is yet more evidence that big polluters seem to have Republican leadership in their back pockets, even while a majority of American people recognize the consequences of climate change. Unfortunately, Republican leaders removed Senate-approved provisions that acknowledge the scientific reality of human-caused climate change and the need to act on it. By keeping irresponsible sequester cuts, this Republican-led Congress puts polluters’ profits ahead of the American people, clean jobs, and environmental protections.”
