Republicans for Environmental Protection Endorses Gerlach for Re-Election

Republicans for Environmental Protection, a national grassroots organization of stewardship-minded Republicans, is pleased to endorse Jim Gerlach for re-election to the U.S. House from Pennsylvania’s 6th District.

“Congressman Gerlach has consistently been one of the top leaders in the House Republican Caucus on environmental issues. We are proud of his lifetime score of 81 in REP’s annual Congressional Scorecard,” REP President Rob Sisson said.

“Congressman Gerlach has been one of the House’s most outspoken champions of developing cleaner energy sources. He has been a strong supporter of tax incentives to develop wind and other renewable energy sources, expand use of alternative fuels, and encourage consumers to invest in energy efficiency,” Sisson said.

“Congressman Gerlach has consistently put good stewardship of our natural heritage at the top of his agenda. Thanks to his leadership, Congress made permanent a tax incentive that encourages the purchase of conservation easements, which will help with restoration of Chesapeake Bay and protection of the Delaware River Basin,” David Jenkins, REP vice president for government and political affairs, said.

“As Republican co-chairman of the House Land Conservation Caucus, he has made it a high priority to educate his colleagues about the importance of conserving open space and protecting farmland,” Jenkins said.

Republicans for Environmental Protection is dedicated to resurrecting the Republican Party’s great conservation tradition and strengthening its commitment to the responsible stewardship of our environment and natural resources, protecting the achievements of great conservation-minded Republicans such as President Theodore Roosevelt.

“Republicans were responsible for most of this nation’s landmark environmental laws and for protecting America’s natural heritage. We are fortunate that we have leaders like Jim Gerlach to carry on the conservative tradition of conservation today,” said Jim DiPeso, REP’s vice president for policy and communications.
