Washington D.C. – In anticipation of Vice President Joe Biden’s remarks on his Plans to Build a Modern, Sustainable Infrastructure and an Equitable Clean Energy Future and to Secure Environmental Justice and Equitable Economic Opportunity in a Clean Energy Future speech today, LCV Action Fund issued the following statement from Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld:
“Vice President Joe Biden’s ambitious new commitments to a clean energy economy, environmental justice, and equitable climate solutions are more important than ever as our nation grapples with the realities of systemic racism, a global pandemic, and the ever growing climate crisis. Biden’s strong climate leadership stands in stark contrast with the Trump administration, which is continuing this week with its full scale assault on environmental and public health protections.
We applaud Vice President Biden for again making clear with these plans that combatting the climate crisis, fighting for environmental justice and creating millions of good-paying, high-quality jobs in a clean energy economy will be a very top priority on day one as president and every single day.”
