WASHINGTON, D.C. — Environment America Executive Director Margie Alt released the following statement on the retirement of Representative Henry Waxman:
“For decades, Representative Waxman has worked tirelessly to protect the water we drink, the air we breathe and the places we love. He has led the charge on tackling climate change, cleaning up our air and protecting our children from toxic chemicals. He and his team of smart, diligent staff have stood up to, stared down, and exposed the dangerous misdeeds of America’s biggest polluters. We will miss his strategic, relentless advocacy on the part of every American’s health and environment.”
