Apr 29, 2014

WASHINGTON DC — League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld released this statement in reaction to the Supreme Court’s decision today in favor of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Cross-State Air Pollution Rule: 

“This is a major victory. Some of our nation’s dirtiest polluters wanted a free pass to spew dangerous pollution into our air that causes serious health problems for downwind states. Millions of Americans can now breathe a sigh of relief that the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of this commonsense health safeguard that holds polluters accountable.”
