House passage of Build Back Better is important step forward to advance largest-ever American investment in climate action

November 19, 2021

WASHINGTON – The U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass the Build Back Better Act today, representing “an important step forward to advance the largest-ever American investment in climate action,” said Conrad Schneider, Advocacy Director at Clean Air Task Force.

The Build Back Better Act passed by a vote of 220-213, and now heads to the Senate for a vote before reaching President Joe Biden’s desk to be signed into law.

Schneider continued:

“With more than $550 billion invested in climate solutions, this bill would help deploy clean energy at scale and push a new generation of critical carbon-free technologies into the mainstream – and not a minute too soon. We commend the group of lawmakers who have helped the Build Back Better Act clear this hurdle, and we look forward to working with their colleagues in the Senate to get this bill passed and through to the President’s desk in short order.”
