LCV Statement on House Leadership Pulling Interior Spending Bill

Jul 9, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC – In response to House leadership pulling the Interior EPA spending bill and preventing a floor vote, LCV Deputy Legislative Director Alex Taurel issued the following statement:

“Republican leaders’ extreme and divisive agenda ran counter to the values of the American people, who want an environmental funding bill that protects our climate, our parks, and the air we breathe and the water we drink. That said, the fact remains that polluters and their allies in Congress will do everything they can to slash funding for environmental protections. Their radical agenda threatens to roll back the clock on the American people, back to a time when polluters could threaten our clean air and water with impunity. We are calling on Republican leaders to go back to the drawing board to craft a bill that protects our environment and the health of our families.”
