We will be meeting him to discuss the $555 billion climate and justice package included in the House-passed reconciliation package. This would put the country and out state on a path to meet President Biden’s ambitious climate action targets. Pennsylvania investments would include roughly $500 million to improve water infrastructure, $1 billion for clean manufacturing, $3 billion for mine and well reclamation, and $8 billion for building out a cleaner, more reliable electric grid. We cannot afford to leave that money on the table. Other key policy priorities in the package are the creation of the Civilian Climate Corps, and making the clean energy tax credits available to all families through refundability and direct pay.

Please help close the deal and pass the reconciliation legislation.

Training: June 8 from 2:00-3:00pm
