WASHINGTON, DC – The New Jersey League of Conservation Voters and the national League of Conservation Voters today praised Rep. Frank LoBiondo’s vote against H.R. 3826, a bill that would allow power plants to continue spewing unlimited amounts of carbon pollution into the air:
“Rep. LoBiondo’s vote protects New Jerseyans. We thank him for demonstrating real leadership to protect public health,” said Ed Potosnak, Executive Director of the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters.
“Rep. LoBiondo put public health before partisan politics. He joined with members of both parties to protect the health of the people of South Jersey by defending commonsense limits on carbon pollution. We set limits on mercury, arsenic, and other pollution from power plants, so we thank Rep. LoBiondo for voting to preserve the national limits on carbon pollution,” said Gene Karpinski, President of the League of Conservation Voters.
