Donald Trump has nominated Brett Kavanaugh to fill the vacant spot on the U.S. Supreme Court. Based on our review of his record, PSR opposes Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court has established important precedents underscoring EPA’s authority to enforce bedrock public health protections like the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act. But with Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, these bedrock policies could be undercut, making it hard for the agency to carry out its mission of protecting our health and the environment.
Kavanaugh, who has served as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit for 12 years, has a history of siding with polluters over the public. He has consistently ruled against environmental protections, including EPA air pollution safeguards under the Clean Air Act, efforts to fight climate change, and protections for clean water.
Kavanaugh’s confirmation would threaten health-protective environmental safeguards for decades to come.
Tell your senators to stand up for health and the environment by rejecting Brett Kavanaugh.
