Build Back Better Act would make crucial clean energy investments to combat climate change
Yesterday, the House Energy and Commerce Committee released the “Build Back Better Act”, the bill text for the mark-up of legislative recommendations for a $3.5 trillion reconciliation package.
CATF Advocacy Director Conrad Schneider said:
“CATF supports the newly released “Build Back Better Act” from the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which proposes crucial investments in low- and zero-carbon energy and incentivizes emissions reductions to help combat climate change and promote clean air. We’re carefully reviewing the provisions relating to the Clean Electricity Payment Program, federal electricity procurement, clean transportation, fee on methane pollution, zero-carbon fuels, electricity transmission, and energy equity, and are encouraged by what we’ve seen so far.”
