The House passed the Build Back Better Act — a major piece of legislation representing the largest investment in climate solutions in our lifetime.
We are so close to winning many of the solutions we need to address climate change in a way that will support families and communities and address a long legacy of environmental racism. Now, we need the Senate to act!
Add your name to our petition right now calling on the Senate to immediately pass the Build Back Better Act! We can’t afford to wait.
Here’s what we’re most excited to see included in the Build Back Better Act:
- Air and water pollution reductions focused in frontline communities that have been disproportionately burdened by inequitable environmental impacts.
- A Civilian Climate Corps that would create good-paying, green jobs for 300,000 people, putting a new generation to work conserving our public lands and waters.
- Robust tax incentives for clean energy, transmission, vehicles, manufacturing, innovative technologies, and energy efficiency that will save households hundreds of dollars annually.
- $29 billion to establish a National Climate Bank, with $15 billion being directly invested in disadvantaged and low-income communities, making this the largest environmental justice investment in U.S. history.
