Climate Power, LCV Announce Paid Media Push in D.C. and Key States of AZ, GA, NH, NV to Get the Build Back Better Act Over the Finish Line

Oct 20, 2021

Washington, D.C. – As Build Back Better Act negotiations reach a critical point and fossil fuel-interests ramp up their misinformation campaign about the bill and the positions of key Democratic senators, Climate Power and the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) are unleashing new TV ads in Washington, D.C., Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and New Hampshire because, one ad says, “our very way of life is at risk.” These new ads are the latest addition to more than $40.5 million Climate Power and the League of Conservation Voters have invested in paid media across the country this year to set the stage for historic action on climate through the Build Back Better Act.

“This is our climate moment and it’s time to get this done,” said Climate Power executive director Lori Lodes. “There is no question that the Build Back Better Act is our best shot to make the investments we need to finally take on the climate crisis, create millions of good-paying jobs, lower families’ electricity bills by $500 a year and tackle environmental injustice. This is a code red moment, and Congress must seize it and get a bill that passes the climate test across the line.”

“Congress has an opportunity right now with the Build Back Better Act to save their constituents $500 a year on their energy bills, create good-paying union jobs, and build a healthy, more equitable clean energy future — all while slowing the devastating impacts of the climate crisis,” said Pete Maysmith, LCV SVP of Campaigns. “It’s no surprise that fossil fuel-interests are ramping up their false attacks as we near the finish line — the bad news for them is that the Build Back Better Act is overwhelmingly popular in every corner of the country. The time is now for President Biden and Congress to quickly pass the Build Back Better Act.”
