LCV Statement on Report that Obama Administration May Accept Riders to Block EPA

WASHINGTON - LCV President Gene Karpinski released the following statement in response to reports that the Obama Administration indicated to the CBC that they may accept amendments to block the EPA in the Continuing Resolution:

“It's especially troubling that the White House would entertain the notion of including riders pushed by Big Oil on the very day the President delivered a speech about reducing our dependence on oil.  President Obama should squash any rumors and make crystal clear that he would veto a Continuing Resolution that includes riders to block the EPA from protecting public health and holding polluters accountable.”
