LCV Statement on House Passage of Electric Vehicle CRA  

Jan 11, 2024

Washington, D.C. – In response to the final passage of Republicans’ Congressional Review Act (CRA) to disapprove of the Federal Highway Administration’s (FWHA)’s tailored Buy America waiver (S.J.Res 38), the League of Conservation Voters issued the following statement from Vice President of Federal Policy Matthew Davis:

“Extreme MAGA Republicans have once again forced a harmful vote that would undermine investments from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and eliminate the commonsense and narrow Buy America waiver for EV charging equipment. Despite forward momentum on federal and private investments that will create good paying, clean energy, union jobs across the country, Congressional Republicans backed by Big Oil donors are making every effort to roll back a clean energy transportation future. Fortunately, President Biden has rightly pledged to veto this resolution. Congress must make every effort to combat the climate crisis and stop attacks on the beneficial investments of the affordable clean energy plan that President Biden and Congressional Democrats delivered last Congress.”
