Washington, D.C. –Today, the League of Conservation Voters and Climate Power announced an additional paid media investment of half a million dollars in key House districts, thanking members for their support of the Build Back Better Act. The TV and digital ads, which will run in more than 20 key congressional districts across the country, come after the House voted to pass the Build Back Back Better Act. And as members in these districts travel back home for the Thanksgiving holiday, LCV organizers and volunteers will greet them at airports and honk and wave events to thank them in person.

“House passage of the strongest climate bill in U.S. history to put our nation on the path to cut climate pollution in half by 2030 while saving people money and investing in frontline communities and communities of color that have suffered the most from climate pollution is certainly something to be thankful for,” said LCV SVP of Campaigns Pete Maysmith. “We thank those members who have supported this bill. This was a huge step forward but the job is not done. Now we look to the Senate to quickly pass this transformational legislation and send it to President Biden’s desk to build back better for the people and the planet.”
“This is the country’s climate moment,” said Climate Power Executive Director Lori Lodes. “An overwhelming number of Democrats delivered for Americans by voting to lower energy prices, create more good-paying jobs, support disadvantaged communities and take on the economic devastation of climate change. The Build Back Better Act is a win-win-win — for our economy, American families and future generations. We are making sure that voters understand just why the Build Back Better Act will benefit them and how important it is that their Democratic representative stepped up to make history.”
