Washington, D.C. — In response to the passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal through the Senate, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from President Gene Karpinski:

“It is now up to the Senate to quickly deliver on the funding needed to meet President Biden’s Build Back Better climate goals and cut carbon pollution by at least half by 2030 through the budget reconciliation. The bipartisan bill and budget package must move in tandem. As debate on the budget resolution begins, it is imperative that the Senate stay focused on passing a bill that will meet the climate ambition goals science and justice require, and not waste time debating anti-environmental riders. As the UN  said, the latest IPCC report is a ‘code red for humanity’ — failure to act on climate is not an option.”
