Washington, D.C. — The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) and Climate Power launched new digital ads today in the nine districts represented by House members who sent a letter to Speaker Pelosi declaring they would not vote for the Budget Resolution until the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal is passed through the House and signed into law. The ads encourage constituents in the districts to call their Member of Congress and make the case that passing the budget resolution through the House next week is an imperative, once-in-a-generation opportunity to fight climate change and secure middle class tax cuts, create clean energy jobs, and lower costs for working families.
“From fighting climate change and creating clean energy jobs, to cutting taxes for the middle class and lowering costs for working families, there is too much at stake for Congress to miss this opportunity to improve the lives of everyone in our country.” said Pete Maysmith, LCV SVP of Campaigns. “Across the nation, an overwhelming majority of people are calling for action on climate, jobs, and justice and we must seize this moment.”
“This is the last, best chance to act on climate, and people across the country overwhelmingly support passage of the Build Back Better budget,” said Lori Lodes, Climate Power Executive Director. “A yes vote means lowering utility bills, creating clean energy jobs, and tackling climate change. It’s a win-win for families and our planet.”

An overwhelming majority of voters support both the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal and the Build Back Better agenda — and they want them passed together. New polling released today found a majority of Democrats (68 percent) and pluralities of Independents (44 percent) and Republicans (38 percent) think it’s very important these investments be made at the same time. And August 9 polling from Hart Research found that the majority of voters think Congress should pass the Build Back Better agenda because it will create good-paying clean energy jobs, lower everyday costs like utility bills, and address long-term problems like climate change.
