Jun 30, 2022

Hickenlooper calls on Congress to act with urgency

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator John Hickenlooper released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in West Virginia v. EPA, which curtails the government’s ability to fight climate change:

“The Court is harming America once again by playing politics instead of following science and the law. Climate change is the crisis of our lifetime and Colorado is on the frontlines. Congress must act to correct this flawed decision – lives are at stake.”

Hickenlooper is a member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. He spearheaded first-in-the-nation limits on methane pollution as Governor and has pushed the EPA to use Colorado’s success as a national model.
