Build Back Better Act Would Reduce Harmful Pollution, Invest in Clean Energy and Wildlife

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The provisions in the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee’s contribution to the Build Back Better Act make important investments in protecting people and wildlife alike through reducing harmful pollutants, supporting a clean energy economy, particularly in communities of color, and investing in wildlife needs such as wildlife corridors and recovery efforts.

“Chairman Carper and the committee’s common-sense solutions in the Build Back Better Act bring together investments in wildlife, water infrastructure, environmental justice, and clean energy that will not only confront the climate crisis head on, but also save families money and create jobs and economic opportunities in communities across the nation,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “We thank Chairman Carper and the committee for their commitment to the health of wildlife and people alike, and urge the Senate to swiftly bring the bill to a vote.”
