A coalition of environmental and conservation organizations on Wednesday released a letter thanking Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York for pushing back against Trump administration policies they contend favors polluters.

In the letter, the groups point to Schumer’s opposition to cuts to the budget of the Environmental Protection Agency.

“With the Trump Administration and their allies in Congress working to gut the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and rollback key environmental protections and safeguards that prevent people from getting sick and dying, it is gratifying to know that there are leaders in Washington standing up to prevent such recklessness,” the letter states.

The letter was released by the Environmental Advocates of New York and signed on to by more than 160 groups representing local, state and national organizations.

“The Trump administration’s efforts to gut EPA will undergo a reckoning, and it begins with lawmakers and citizens saying, ‘enough is enough.’ Senator Schumer’s battle cry is a rallying point for us all to Save the EPA. We won’t stop until the agency that protects us all is spared the recklessness of those that put polluter-friendly policies ahead of public health,” said Environmental Advocates of New York Executive Director Peter Iwanowicz. “We thank Senator Schumer for leading the fight in D.C. and urge all New York representatives to take the same stand.”
