Washington, D.C. — Today, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) and Climate Power launched new digital ads calling on Reps. Ed Case (HI-01), Stephanie Murphy (FL-07), Kathleen Rice (NY-04), and Kurt Schrader (OR-05) to deliver on their pledge to pass the Build Back Better Act with historic and transformative investments in climate, jobs, and justice by the week of November 15. 


“Passing the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act was only step one — now it’s time for Congress to finish the job, pass the Build Back Better Act, and put the U.S. on track to cut our climate pollution in half by 2030,” said Pete Maysmith, LCV SVP of Campaigns. “This overwhelmingly popular bill is Congress’ opportunity to save their constituents $500 a year on their energy bills, create good-paying union jobs, and build a healthy, more equitable clean energy future, all while slowing the devastating impacts of the climate crisis.”

“A vote against the Build Back Better Act will be a vote against climate action, job opportunities, environmental justice, and the future of our nation,” said Lori Lodes, Climate Power Executive Director. “Every week we delay is another week where communities are suffering from extreme droughts, devastating wildfires and unprecedented storms. Communities of color on the frontlines are still plagued by toxic pollution and waiting for something to be done. Congress needs to finish the job by passing the Build Back Better Act the week of November 15 to deliver for the American people.” 

In addition to the new digital ads, LCV, Climate Power and the NRDC Action Fund are continuing to run the “Delivering” TV ad in 10 key House districts. The ad thanks the members for fighting for good paying jobs, lower utilities, and climate action for their constituents and urges them to pass the Build Back Better Act and get this done.

“This is it. The Build Back Better Act is a chance to secure a brighter future for generations to come, and an opportunity like this won’t come around again anytime soon. Now is the moment to act, to show leadership and to do the right thing for our children and grandchildren,” said Kevin S. Curtis, executive director of the NRDC Action Fund.
