President’s Leadership Brought People Together Across Political, Policy Differences to Secure Largest Investments Ever in Climate, Clean Energy Solutions
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. House of Representatives’ passage of the bipartisan infrastructure package and the Build Back Better Act secures the largest legislative investments in policies and programs since the New Deal that will create jobs, strengthen community resilience, address environmental injustices, slow climate change, and recover wildlife.
“The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and Build Back Better Act together represent the largest ever investment in climate action, natural resource restoration, community resilience and revitalization, clean water and air, and good-paying jobs since the New Deal. The president brought people together, across partisan divides and policy differences, to secure today’s vote in the House — and these bills’ victories for people and wildlife alike,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “From the unprecedented investments in restoring our natural resources and establishing a Civilian Climate Corps to the expansion of domestic manufacturing and deployment of cleaner sources of energy, transportation, and materials, these investments will ensure no community is left behind as we transition to our clean energy future.”
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Build Back Better Act include a range of provisions and investments that will benefit people and wildlife alike, including:
