Washington, D.C. — In response to House Democrats’ election of Rep. Rosa DeLauro to chair the House Appropriations Committee, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released the following statement from Legislative Director Matthew Davis:

“Congratulations to Rep. Rosa DeLauro on her election to lead the powerful Appropriations Committee. With a 95 percent lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard, Rep. DeLauro is an excellent choice to carry on outgoing Chairwoman Nita Lowey’s environmental legacy. We look forward to working with Chairwoman-elect DeLauro on rebuilding the budgets of federal agencies tasked with protecting our public health, air, water and lands, ensuring adequate funding to right environmental injustices communities of color face, and supporting President-elect Biden’s all of government response to tackle climate change.”
