The League joined other environmental organizations on a letter sent to U.S. Senators encouraging them to support the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) funding at levels needed for the agency to carry out its core missions. The EPA implements and enforces environmental statutes like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water act and repeated budget cuts over the last several years have begun to compromise the EPA's ability to enforce these laws and protect Americans.
The League joined partners in signing onto a letter to the U.S. House of Representatives opposing H.R. 3, legislation that would allow the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline without first receiving a permit.
Climate change is the greatest environmental challenge of our generation. The League works to build grassroots support for action on climate change nationally and at the state and local levels in order to avoid irrevocable damage to our planet.
