NEWS RELEASE

"In the face of today's repeated attempts to put our health and safety at risk, Connecticut's Senators Joe Lieberman and Richard Blumenthal fought to make sure that Americans will have clean air to breathe. They helped beat back four different measures in the U.S. Senate that would have weakened the Clean Air Act, which protects Americans from dangerous pollution like mercury, carbon, and methane. Senators Lieberman and Blumenthal showed the kind of leadership that we need in Congress. Every person in Connecticut who has lungs should call them to say thank you."
