Jan 30, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement on the retirement of Congressman Henry Waxman:

“For forty years, there has been no greater champion for protecting the environment and public health than Henry Waxman. From the life-saving Clean Air Act amendments of 1990 to his leadership in passing the first comprehensive climate change legislation through the U.S. House to his ongoing efforts to take on climate change deniers, he has been an unparalleled leader in fighting the climate crisis. He has also led the charge on countless important issues over the last four decades, and we will miss him immensely.”
