Maryland LCV’s statement on the Build Back Better Act
October 28, 2021
“Today, after thousands of Marylanders and millions across the nation called, knocked on doors, and demanded action, the President has announced a framework with the strongest action the United States has ever taken to combat the climate crisis. This framework represents years of work from frontline communities and others to put the U.S. on the path to cutting our climate pollution in half by 2030, invest directly in communities of color too often left behind, and create good-paying union jobs. Congress must swiftly pass the Build Back Better Act and send it to President Biden to sign into law.
Together with federal executive orders and state and local legislation, the Build Back Better Act will ensure we meet our climate goals. This is a historic day for people and the planet. We expect Maryland’s entire delegation to support this framework that improves the lives of every Marylander and eagerly await a final vote in Congress.”
