March 30, 2023

Washington, D.C. – Today, House Majority Forward and the League of Conservation Voters launched a six-figure ad campaign across seven congressional districts on the Polluters Over People Act, designated H.R. 1.  

WATCH: “Helped Them Do It”

The new ads that will run on streaming services like Hulu, Roku TV, Direct TV, and Sling in the following House districts:

“The new majority in Congress continues to push sky-high prices at the gas pump, while allowing corporations to rake in enormous profits,” said House Majority Forward Executive Director Abby Curran Horrell. “Americans must make their voices heard loud and clear to this extreme majority and tell them to stop protecting big oil.”

“These members’ votes show they are beholden to extreme MAGA leadership in the House and their oil and gas donors; they are completely out of step with their California and New York constituents who clearly rejected a pro-pollution, pro-oil agenda,” said LCV Senior Vice President of Campaigns Pete Maysmith. “This harmful and backward-looking package of bills is a huge giveaway to polluters that locks us into new fossil fuel production that will exacerbate the climate crisis, increase costs, worsen environmental injustice, and increase toxic pollution that threatens our health.”

The full script for the CA-41 version of the ad is below:
