WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in West Virginia v. EPA:

“For more than 50 years, the Clean Air Act has reduced pollution and improved air quality for families across Wisconsin. After decades of Congressional Republicans and the big polluters that fund their campaigns attempting to gut the Clean Air Act and roll back the clock on this progress, the activist Supreme Court has misguidedly done the bidding of fossil fuel executives and barred the very agency charged with protecting communities from pollution from doing their job. In Washington, I will continue fighting to address climate change, provide Wisconsin communities the resources they need to respond to extreme weather events, and ensure every Wisconsinite can live in a community with clean air and water.”
