Washington, DC— In response to media accounts about President Trump’s upcoming budget, LCV Deputy Legislative Director Alex Taurel issued the following statement:

“If these reports are accurate, Trump’s rigged budget would stack the deck in favor of Big Oil and other corporate lobbyists who want to take the cops off the beat that protect clean drinking water, healthy air, and a safe climate for all people in this country.  Trump’s radical budget slashing the EPA would Make America Sick Again.  We will resist and hold accountable Donald Trump and Members of Congress who support a spending plan that puts polluters first over the health of everyday people in this country.”
