Today, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) and Sierra Club led the following environmental coalition letter to Congress urging Representatives to vote YES on H.R. 7573, which is expected to get a vote this week on Wednesday.  This bill would replace the bust of Roger Brooke Taney in the Old Supreme Court Chamber of the United States Capitol with a bust of Thurgood Marshall and would remove statues of individuals who voluntarily served the Confederacy from areas of the United States Capitol which are accessible to the public. Read the full letter below.

The full list of green groups who signed on are: Earthjustice, Friends of the Earth, League of Conservation Voters, National Resources Defense Council, Sierra Club, The Wilderness Society
