Washington, D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters released the following statement on the Trump administration’s forthcoming Clean Power Plan replacement from Vice President for Government Affairs Sara Chieffo:

“Simply put, this dirty power scam is an attempt to deny us the cleaner air and clean energy economy we all deserve. Former coal industry lobbyist Andrew Wheeler is continuing Scott Pruitt’s dangerous policies to put corporate polluters ahead of our health and safety. As wildfires rage in the West and flooding threatens homes in the East, countless communities are being devastated by the impacts from climate change. Coming on the heels of their proposed rollback of the Clean Car Standards, this is one of the Trump administration’s most blatant attacks yet on clean air safeguards that protect our health, our communities, our climate, and our future. Everyone has a right to a safe and healthy community and this huge giveaway to polluters will cost lives.”
