Washington, D.C. – As President Biden, Vice President Harris, and Cabinet members fan out across the country this week to reinforce the administration’s climate and environmental accomplishments and actions they are poised to take, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from SVP of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld:
“As House Republicans consider heinous cuts to popular investments in clean energy, clean air and water, and environmental justice in communities across the country, the Biden-Harris administration is delivering the popular affordable clean energy plan and improving the lives of children and families. The Inflation Reduction Act is already bringing real results to every community to lower costs, create good jobs, and reduce toxic pollution that causes health problems.
“As the administration fans out across the country, Minnesota is a prime example of the positive impact of new climate action. As Vice President Harris heads to the North Star State today, Minnesotans can breathe easier with more electric school buses on their streets, and a new landmark 100% clean energy plan on the books – state and federal investments in clean energy, jobs, and a healthier future are having a direct, positive impact on people’s lives. This is the action on climate, justice, and jobs that voters demanded – and it’s only the beginning. LCV and our state partners are all in to support the Biden-Harris administration’s swift, effective and equitable implementation of the Inflation Reduction Act and finalization of health and climate protections and to highlight the benefits to hardworking families.”
