LCV Statement on House GOP Energy and Climate Agenda

Jun 2, 2022

Courtnee Connon,

Washington, D.C. – Today, in response to the reports that the GOP will release an Energy and Climate Agenda, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released the following statement from LCV Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld:

“This would be laughable as a climate agenda in 2022 except there is absolutely nothing funny about the climate crisis or Congressional Republicans’ obstruction of desperately needed solutions in the name of lining the pockets of their corporate allies and big oil polluters who fund their campaigns. Unfortunately, they are simply turning a blind eye to the science, communities harmed by fossil fuel pollution, and the will of voters by doubling down on the failed energy policies of the past. There is no more time to waste. Congressional Republicans must prioritize people over polluter profits and support commonsense clean energy investments to address the climate crisis and environmental injustice, create good-paying union jobs, and save people money on their energy bills.”
