New York LCV & National LCV Praise Rep. Gibson’s Vote Against Whitfield Bill

Mar 6, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC – The New York League of Conservation Voters and the national League of Conservation Voters today praised Rep. Chris Gibson’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. Gibson stood up for New Yorkers’ health today when he voted to uphold commonsense limits on air pollutants. We thank him for demonstrating real leadership in protecting our environment,” said Marcia Bystryn, President of the New York League of Conservation Voters. 

“Rep. Gibson put public health before partisan politics. He joined with members of both parties to protect the health of the people of New York by defending commonsense limits on carbon pollution. We set limits on mercury, arsenic, and other pollution from power plants, so we thank Rep. Gibson for voting to preserve the national limits on carbon pollution,” said Gene Karpinski, President of the League of Conservation Voters.
