Washington, D.C. — In response to the release of President Biden’s initial budget blueprint today, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Legislative Director Matthew Davis:

“Elections have consequences. We are encouraged to see the Biden-Harris administration put their money where their mouth is and re-affirm an all of government commitment with $14 billion for climate action and justice for communities most impacted by toxic pollution and the impacts of the climate crisis in their budget blueprint. We’re especially thrilled to see the administration’s focus on rebuilding and boosting government agencies’ core capacities to support and complement the visionary investments outlined in the American Jobs Plan and the Made in America Tax Plan. We desperately need this historic and robust budget with climate action and environmental justice at the center in order to meet the scale of the interwoven crises we face. The voters who overcame historic barriers to elect President Biden and Vice President Harris are counting on it.”
