Washington, D.C. — In response to the passing of Rep. Elijah Cummings, the League of Conservation Voters issued the following statement from President Gene Karpinski:

“Thank you Chairman Cummings for a courageous life of service and an unwavering commitment to justice. The Congressman was a true environmental champion and his leadership will be sorely missed. He never stopped fighting to hold those in power accountable, or for the health and future of his constituents in Baltimore. Our thoughts are with the Cummings family and his staff at this difficult time.”
