Washington, D.C. — In response to the release of President Biden’s FY22 spending plan today, the League of Conservation Voters issued the following statement from Vice President of Government Affairs Sara Chieffo:
“It’s a good week for our communities when the oil companies are giving up on fossil fuels and the president’s budget includes more than $36 billion to fight the climate crisis. Thank you, President Biden, for responding to the overwhelming majority of people across the country who support climate action, clean energy, high-quality union jobs and environmental justice. The importance of this administration’s proposal to make the largest-ever investment in communities of color and low-income communities who have been subjected to environmental racism for decades cannot be overstated. Congress should work quickly to pass this budget, enact the American Jobs Plan, and meet the scale of the crises we face with the big investments needed to build back better with justice and equity.
