Washington, D.C. — The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) launched a new six-figure digital ad buy today in the home states and districts of key Senate and House Committee chairs who are instrumental to ensuring the investments in the Build Back Better Act meet the Climate Test and put the U.S. on track to cut carbon emissions in half by 2030 — the goal that President Biden set and science and justice require .

“Past successes tell us that investing in new clean energy technologies is one of the best things we can do to create good jobs for regular people right now while reaping long-term benefits and a healthier planet for decades to come,” said Matthew Davis, LCV Senior Director of Government Affairs. “We are grateful to these Senate and House committee chairs for doing the critically important work of drafting and advancing federal climate and clean technology investments in the Build Back Better Act so that we can use the power of American ingenuity to create the clean technology jobs of today and tomorrow.”
The ads will run as pieces of the Build Back Better Act successfully advance out of House committees and move toward House and Senate floor votes.
