Washington, D.C. — In response to the release of a new report from respected energy research firm the Rhodium Group, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Vice President of Government Affairs Sara Chieffo:

“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. The Rhodium Group’s new report makes it clear that we can still cut our emissions in half by 2030 through swiftly enacting the Build Back Better Act combined with continued bold executive branch and state leadership. President Biden and Congress: The time is now to quickly come to an agreement on the Build Back Better Act that meets the Climate Test with once-in-a-generation investments in climate, clean energy, jobs, and justice.”
