Once again our congressional representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers has followed political marching orders and sold out her constituents.
In an unusual move, the League of Conservation Voters has given her a zero score for her votes on the GOP budget, which contains extra riders to remove environmental protections.
These back-door amendments do little or nothing to cut spending, they only serve to deregulate and benefit polluting industries.
The CRV writes: “The sweeping assaults on the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the wildlife and wild places Americans hold dear make it the most anti-environmental piece of legislation in decades.”
Near Nature, Near Perfect? In a region that so values and depends on its natural resources, why do we continue to elect representatives who do nothing to protect them?
