Washington, D.C. – “Given Donald Trump’s consistent deference to corporate polluters over public health and environmental protection, it should come as no surprise his new nominee for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, has a long record of opposing common-sense regulations that would keep people safer and healthier, while limiting the ability of the Environmental Protection Agency to do its job. Kavanaugh is an unapologetic right-wing ideologue, and his confirmation would threaten much of what everyday Americans expect from a fair and just government. We will do all we can to fight his nomination.
“Brett Kavanaugh has demonstrated a clear acknowledgement of the role and responsibility of Congress to enact environmental protections as it sees fit. But it means we must elect a new, progressive Congress in November if we want to maintain and strengthen our environmental protections. Nothing short of a new Congress that will oppose the harmful policies of Trump and Acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler will ensure health, safety and climate stability for future generations.”
