Washington, D.C. — In response to the unveiling of the Growing Renewable Energy and Efficiency Now (GREEN) Act discussion draft today, the League of Conservation Voters issued the following statement from Legislative Director Matthew Davis:

“Incentivizing clean energy makes all the sense in the world. Extending these tax incentives will mean cleaner air, economic opportunity, and progress in the fight against the climate crisis. This action is especially critical because pollution and the impacts of climate change are hitting communities of color and lower income communities first and worst and these tax incentives represent our best hope for climate action this year in Congress. We applaud Chairman Neal, Subcommittee Chair Thompson, and the Ways and Means members for pulling together these critical tax policies into the GREEN Act.”
