Washington, D.C. –  In response to Sen. Manchin’s statement that he will not support the Build Back Better Act, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from SVP of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld: 

“The people of West Virginia don’t have to look further than their neighboring Kentucky for the deadly and devastating impacts of  a climate catastrophe. The imperative to support legislation to act on climate and avert future devastation should be crystal clear for their Senator. The overwhelmingly popular Build Back Better Act will save West Virginians money on their energy bills and other monthly expenses, create good-paying union jobs, and build a healthier, more equitable clean energy future for every community. This is not the end of the road. We are more determined than ever, and we will keep fighting like hell to ensure the Build Back Better Act becomes law – for the people of West Virginia and for all people in this country who care deeply about climate, jobs, and justice.”
