Washington, D.C. — In response to President Biden ending infrastructure talks with Senate Republicans, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Tiernan Sittenfeld, SVP of Government Affairs:

“When Republicans in the U.S. Congress show you who they are again and again, believe them. Despite overwhelming bipartisan support for the American Jobs Plan and significant investments in clean energy in even the deepest red states and districts, Senate Republicans are completely out of step and are failing their constituents. It’s time for Democrats to move on, pass the American Jobs Plan ASAP and get millions of people back to work in high-quality jobs while investing in ambitious climate solutions, environmental justice, and clean energy.”

According to a May 27 Navigator Research poll, 4 in 5 voters support making significant investments in clean energy as part of the economic recovery, and the vast majority of Independents (76%), Black Americans (90%), Hispanic Americans (74%), and Asian Americans (77%) support including climate-related initiatives in the American Jobs Plan.
