Washington, D.C. — In anticipation of President Biden signing the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act today, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld:

“We applaud the Biden-Harris administration and the bipartisan group of members of Congress for enacting the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into law and ensuring badly needed investments in electric vehicle charging stations and electric school buses, replacement of harmful lead service lines, clean technology research and development, grid modernization, and more. This is an important step forward, and now Congress must finish the job by passing the Build Back Better Act and getting it to President Biden’s desk in the coming weeks. Congress can and must pass the Build Back Better Act to meet the climate test of cutting climate pollution in half by 2030, the goal set by President Biden and that science and environmental and racial justice require. Doing so is critical to creating and sustaining millions of good-paying union jobs in the clean energy economy and investing in the frontline and communities of color that have suffered the most from toxic pollution, and it will save people money on their energy bills and other monthly expenses. The time to build on today’s progress and Build Back Better once and for all is right now.”
