LCV: ‘Stark contrast between Biden budget for the people and House Republicans’ policies for polluters’

Mar 10, 2023

Washington, D.C. – In response to President Biden’s FY2024 budget and energy bill markups in the House Natural Resources and Energy & Commerce committees, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Leah Donahey, Federal Advocacy Campaigns Director:

“The contrast between President Biden’s budget for the people and House Republicans’ policies for polluters could not be more stark. The President’s budget would hold profiteering oil companies accountable; House Republicans want to pad the pockets of Big Oil who raked in an obscene $400 billion+ last year. The President’s budget includes the most climate funding in presidential budget history, and would lower energy costs for families; House Republicans are trying to lock us into decades of dirty, volatile fossil fuels that will make the climate crisis worse and perpetuate environmental injustice. The dirty energy package in formation in the House is nothing more than a handout to Big Oil and MAGA extremists. The pro-environment, pro-working family policies in the President’s budget are the popular approach to advancing affordable clean energy our country needs.”
