Washington, D.C. – In response to the passing of Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY25), the League of Conservation Voters issued the following statement from President Gene Karpinski:

“We are deeply saddened by the loss of environmental champion Louise Slaughter. A member of the Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition, she was a strong defender of health and safety for her district, her state and her country. A tireless advocate for clean energy and protection for the Great Lakes, her leadership included introducing the Children’s Health Task Force Act of 2012 and the Green Bank Act of 2014. She was also an original co-sponsor of legislation to combat invasive species and improve water quality. Our sympathy is with Representative Slaughter’s family. She will be sorely missed.”
