Washington, DC - The following is a statement by Elisabeth MacNamara, president of the League of Women Voters of the U.S.:
“Today the U.S. House of Representatives voted to stop the Clean Air Act from going forward.
“If the House gets its way, EPA would be permanently blocked from regulating harmful carbon pollution.
“The House of Representatives is out-of-touch with reality -- the climate change tsunami is coming.”
The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
