Last weekend the House voted to pass the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill
From cleaning up Superfund sites, to replacing lead pipes, providing money to communities to prepare for climate disasters, improving transit, and funding EV charging stations, there are positive things in this bill. Yet it also provides money for highway expansion and nuclear reactors. It’s hardly the transformative climate action we need, providing only “nominal” emissions cuts overall. That’s why we must keep the pressure on Congress to pass the “Build Back Better” Act, a climate bill, through the reconciliation process.
