WASHINGTON, DC – The core of President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda is set up for a vote in Congress in the House as early as tonight. If passed and signed into law, the Build Back Better Act would represent the largest federal investment in the economy and combatting climate change.
Statement from Sandra Purohit, director of federal advocacy for E2:
“Today’s vote is historic. If the Build Back Better Act passes, as we believe it will, we are one step closer to the most significant investment ever made in our economy’s future. This bill is about creating millions of jobs, strengthening our supply chains, ensuring our businesses and our economy are globally competitive, and confronting the costs of climate change that threaten every industry.
“Clean energy workers are found in every state, every county, every metro area, and every congressional district. By delivering on Build Back Better, Congress is delivering for our economy, our workers, and our communities”
