Dave Kuntz, (202) 572-3570,

(WASHINGTON, DC – June 3, 2020) “At a time when Americans need it most, Chairman DeFazio’s infrastructure bill will create good jobs and reduce unhealthy air pollution.

“In every corner of our country, we need our elected leaders to step forward with proposals that will rebuild better and invest in proven initiatives that will put people back to work.

“By investing in new incentives for installing electric vehicle charging stations, expanding the adoption of zero-emission buses, easing traffic congestion and spurring innovation in green freight, this bill helps clean up the air in overburdened communities, cut costs and deliver practical and popular solutions to fix our nation’s deteriorating infrastructure.

“Rebuilding better starts with strong proposals like Chairman DeFazio’s Invest in America Act and EDF believes this legislation will put us on a path towards a healthier, stronger and safer America where everyone can prosper.”
