Washington, DC— In response to President Trump signing an Executive Order on regulatory rollback today, LCV Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld issued the following statement:

“With this executive order, President Trump is rigging the system so corporate lobbyists can lower standards that protect the public health and safety of all people in this country. These task forces will attempt to roll back commonsense protections for the air we breathe, the water we drink and the lands we cherish. With further abhorrent actions expected in the coming days, we call on Trump to start putting the health and environment of the American people first.”
