Environmental activists fault some of Sen. Amy Klobuchar's moves


Tiernan Sittenfeld, senior vice president of government affairs for the LCV, commended Klobuchar for “really trying to lift up that climate change is not a distant threat” and her commitment to “undoing the horrific damage” done by the Trump administration. The group gave her a 100% score for votes in 2018 that included steps to block invasive species and provide money for conservation efforts.

Still, Sittenfeld said, the LCV hopes Klobuchar “will also publicly oppose mining within the majestic Boundary Waters watershed and speak more to the importance of protecting all of Minnesota’s cherished lands and wildlife.”
