Seattle Times letters to the editor

EPA regulations: Cathy McMorris Rodgers has voted lockstep against environmental legislation

A recent Seattle Times editorial stated that U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers does not represent the opinions and wishes of the people of Washington state [“Cathy McMorris Rodgers needs to take a stand for Ex-Im Bank,” Opinion, June 24], and this has surely been verified by her guest column in The Seattle Times [“Obama’s regulatory cap-and-trade does not work for Washington state,” Opinion, July 2].

Some of the worst pollution in our state occurs in the Spokane area, which she represents, and her financial contributors are large industrial firms that benefit from relaxed rules. She has voted against all environmental regulations on a regular basis. She votes lockstep against any legislation that might have a possibility of improving our economy and living standards of millions across the United States.
