LCV Action Fund Endorses Hoyer for Re-Election

BOWIE, MD - Today, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) was endorsed by the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund. LCV Action Fund works to elect leaders who stand up for a clean, healthy environment and to defeat anti-environment candidates who oppose climate action. 
"I am honored to be endorsed by the LCV Action Fund," said Congressman Hoyer. "The climate crisis is a real and extremely serious threat facing communities throughout Maryland and around the world. Throughout my career in Congress, I've supported strong legislation to protect our environment, reduce carbon pollution, and improve public health. I am grateful for the important work the LCV Action Fund is doing to address the climate crisis, and I look forward to continuing to work together to improve the health of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, and all our natural resources."
“Leader Steny Hoyer’s leadership in the U.S. House has been critical in the effort to defend our environment from the relentless attacks by the Trump administration and to advance climate action by the new House majority,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “We are proud to endorse him for re-election because we know that he will never stop fighting for Marylanders’ clean air, water, and a safe climate. Now, more than ever, we need Leader Hoyer and other members of Congress to fight for racial justice and equity, including climate justice and environmental justice for communities of color.”
“Marylanders across our state appreciate Steny Hoyer’s longtime leadership to protect the Chesapeake Bay and our state’s other natural treasures,” said Maryland LCV Executive Director Kim Coble. “We are also proud of his leadership in the House of Representatives to put forward an agenda that reflects our shared environmental values and the need to act on the climate crisis."
