Oct 5, 2023

Washington, D.C. — Today, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) announced a five-figure digital ad buy totaling $56,000 to celebrate members of Congress who are working to protect the Inflation Reduction Act’s climate-smart agriculture investments. These ads will run until the end of October in-district and across Washington, DC on programmatic platforms including: connected TVs and streaming devices, and thousands of websites visited daily.

The ads will run in the following districts:

  • CT-05 (Rep. Jahana Hayes)
  • FL-09 (Rep. Darren Soto)
  • IL-01 (Rep. Jonathan Jackson)
  • IL-17 (Rep. Eric Sorensen)
  • MA-02 (Rep. Jim McGovern)
  • ME-01 (Rep. Chellie Pingree)
  • TX-35 (Rep. Greg Casar)

“Farmers across the country deeply understand and experience the impacts of extreme weather and pollution on our communities, and can be a critical part of innovative solutions to tackle the climate crisis through climate-smart agriculture practices,” said Deputy Legislative Director Madeleine Foote. “The bold investments in climate-smart agriculture included in the Inflation Reduction Act are critical to increase resiliency and help protect our farmers, food supply, and communities. These members of Congress know that investments in the USDA’s conservation programs will benefit not only our farming and rural communities, but also our economy, our environment, and every community across the country experiencing impacts from the climate crisis.”
