Orlando, FL — The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) launched a new six-figure cable ad buy in the Orlando, FL market calling on Rep. Murphy to continue to prioritize clean energy investments and real climate action in the Build Back Better Act. Both the US House and Senate are currently working to ensure this bill meets the country’s “Climate Test” and puts the U.S. on track to cut carbon emissions in half by 2030 — the goal that President Biden set and science and justice require. As her state continues to see worsening hurricanes and rising seas, we are counting on Rep. Murphy to continue to stand up for Floridians and ensure we do not miss this opportunity to act.

Watch “Existential” (Rep. Stephanie Murphy, FL-07)

The ad will run this week and as the Build Back Better Act is negotiated and moves toward House and Senate floor votes.

“Existential” (Rep. Stephanie Murphy, FL-07) script:

Here in Florida, we are on the frontlines of climate change
And we have the chance to take the challenge head on with the Build Back Better Act
A clean energy plan that would be a huge win for Florida
Thousands of new jobs, critical to the fight against climate change
As Congresswomen Stephanie Murphy says:
“Climate change is an existential threat for Florida, but it is also an opportunity to be seized.”
Congresswoman Murphy this is our chance,
Let’s get it done.

At the end of April, 14 Florida state and local elected officials signed a letter calling on Congress to support President Biden’s plan and to ensure our federal infrastructure plan invests in a clean energy future and environmental justice. They joined over 1200 leaders from all 50 states and DC urging Congress to seize this moment as our last best chance to tackle the climate crisis.
