WASHINGTON, DC—U.S. Senator Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ), a member of the Environment and Public Works Committee and Chairman of the Subcommittee on Superfund, Toxics and Environmental Health today issued the following statement:

“Lisa Jackson will go down in history as one of the strongest and most effective Administrators of the Environmental Protection Agency. She took the lead at the EPA at a challenging but critical time in America and fought tirelessly to carry out her mission of improving public health and protecting the environment. Generations to come will benefit from Administrator Jackson's bold initiatives to cut mercury and dangerous toxic air pollution and her work to improve tailpipe pollution standards. These historic public health victories will save countless lives and reduce America's dependence on dirty oil.

“Here in New Jersey, Administrator Jackson was a forceful ally with a deep understanding of our state's environmental challenges and a commitment to address them. We will always be grateful for her work with us to stop emissions from a Pennsylvania coal-burning plant that polluted New Jersey air for decades. Administrator Jackson also knew the threat that Superfund sites posed in so many communities and used every EPA resource to clean them up so that our children and families are safe.

“Administrator Jackson has built a record that we should be proud of at the EPA, and we will be sad to see her leave. I look forward to working with the next Administrator to make sure the products we use, the air we breathe, and the water we drink is safe for our children and families.”

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"Governor Christie ripped President Obama this summer for failing to carve out some time during a Texas fundraising swing to visit the Mexican border, where the unprecedented flood of immigrant children from Central America had reached a crisis point. ...Yet Christie is not squeezing in a tour of the troubled border during his own three-day trade and diplomatic mission to Mexico, which is set to begin on Wednesday. The governor is planning a series of meetings with Mexican officials, including President Enrique Peña Nieto and the finance and energy ministers." - columnist Charles Stile
