Jun 13, 2023

Washington D.C. – In response to the markup of the inaccurately named Build It in America Act, H.R. 3938,  in House Ways and Means today, the League of Conservation Voters issued the following statement from Vice President of Federal Policy Matthew Davis

“The ink wasn’t even dry on the deal to avoid a catastrophic debt default before MAGA House Republicans turned around and tried to go after the same popular, job-creating and cost-saving clean energy provisions they failed to cut. This time the move reveals even more of their true motivations as they attempt to enrich their fossil fuel allies and billionaires by cutting their taxes. The impact of this bill would be fewer jobs and higher energy costs for people in exchange for tax breaks for polluters. We will continue to hold House Republicans accountable for voting against their constituents‘ interests and the desires of the public to advance clean energy investments and reduce dependence on volatile, costly fossil fuels.”
