WASHINGTON, DC – The reconciliation package passed out of the House on Thursday by a vote 220-213, advancing the core of President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda to the Senate.

Statement from Sandra Purohit, director of federal advocacy for E2:

“Today the House delivered for our economy, our workers, and our communities and we are one step closer to the most significant investment ever made in climate and clean energy. Now it’s time for the Senate to act and secure our economy’s future.

“American workers and businesses are counting on the Senate to immediately pass the Build Back Better Act so work can begin improving our global competitiveness, building more resilient supply chains, and growing a clean energy-driven economy. The economic toll of climate change is too high to delay any longer.”
