Boxer Response to Marburger Statement on White House Editing of CDC Global Warming Testimony
October 26, 2007

Washington, DC - U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, today made the following remarks in response to a statement released this morning by Dr. John Marburger, Director of the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy. Numerous pages were completely cut by the White House from the testimony of Dr. Julie Gerberding, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, before an October 23 Environment and Public Works Committee hearing on the impacts of global warming on public health.

Senator Boxer said: "Dr. Marburger's statement is a lame defense of the White House action to censor information the American people deserve to know about the dangers of global warming."
