WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee’s contributions to the Build Back Better Act will support wildlife and people alike through smart, fiscally sound investments in resilience and restoration, jobs, clean energy, oil and gas reforms, and other essential programs.
“Chairman Manchin and the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee’s contributions to the Build Back Better Act highlight how when we invest in restoration, resilience, wildlife, and cleaner energy, we can support good jobs and innovation,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “We share and support the committee’s vision and proposals for investing in critical restoration programs at the Department of the Interior, making taxpayers whole through smart oil and gas leasing reform, conserving the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and supporting clean energy and advanced manufacturing. Thank you to Chairman Manchin and the caucus for ensuring wildlife conservation and common-sense environmental reforms are included in the Build Back Better Act.”
“West Virginians cherish the outdoors — we’re pleased that Senator Manchin recognizes the importance of common-sense rules for our public lands,” said Angie Rosser, executive director of West Virginia Rivers Coalition. “His leadership on this bill will result in a fair return for taxpayers on our shared resources as well as increased access to outdoor recreation opportunities that enrich our lives.”
