Mar 17, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC –League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released this statement from Alex Taurel, Deputy Legislative Director in reaction the release of the House Republican 2016 Budget.

“The House Republican Budget is yet another stunning symbol of the influence that the oil, gas and coal industries have over this Congress. The Republican Leadership should stop doing polluters’ bidding by sacrificing protections for clean air, water and public lands that Americans and many businesses rely on. Instead of recklessly blocking efforts to curb climate change and padding the profits of the fossil fuel industry, Republican leaders should focus on the measures that put the interests of the average American first; that means promoting clean energy jobs, protecting the environment and keeping our economy growing.”
