LCV Statement in Opposition to Rosen for Deputy Secretary of Transportation

Apr 5, 2017

Washington, DC: Following the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee’s approval of the nomination of Jeffrey Rosen for Deputy Secretary of Transportation, the League of Conservation Voters Legislative Representative, Sara Jordan, issued the following statement:

“Jeffrey Rosen is yet another addition to Trump’s polluter-friendly administration who will pose a serious threat to our health and safety. With his history of putting industry profits ahead of American families, his hostility toward basic environmental protections, and his attempts to undermine climate science, it is clear that Rosen will trade in our health and safety in order to protect corporate interests, especially when it comes to the clean car standards. We strongly urge the Senate to reject his nomination.”
