Washington, D.C. — In response to the passage of funding for important environmental programs through the House of Representatives today as part of the FY22 appropriations bills on Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies, and Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Senior Director of Government Affairs Matthew Davis:

Thank you to House Democrats for leading on this historic package of investments in healthy communities, public lands, and climate action. These appropriations bills make critical investments creating good-paying jobs deploying clean energy technologies, funding the Environmental Protection Agency at the highest level in its history, establishing a Civilian Climate Corps, providing billions for grant programs to improve drinking water and sewer systems, and investing in renewable energy and weatherization programs. Pro-environment House committee chairs and leadership are once again showing that fighting the climate crisis, creating good-paying jobs, and addressing environmental injustice are a top priority for the caucus. We look forward to working with them and their Senate counterparts to get these bills to President Biden’s desk.”
