President Biden Reaffirms His Commitment to Transformative Clean Energy Economy Bill

EDF Statement from Elizabeth Gore, Senior Vice President, Political Affairs

March 1, 2022
Ben Schneider, (202) 572-3279,

“President Biden sent a clear signal tonight that he will continue to deliver on his promise to prioritize America’s clean energy economy. We join him in his call for Congress to pass his bold and transformative climate and energy agenda that will deliver good-paying jobs, lower costs for families, provide cleaner air and water, and fight climate change.

“The Biden Administration has already demonstrated its commitment to a ‘whole of government’ approach to climate action. Under the president’s leadership, America has rejoined the Paris Climate Agreement, federal agencies are implementing ambitious climate strategies, and the federal government is implementing the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, including investments that will help drive meaningful climate progress. 

"Now Congress needs to act. Congress has the power to enact the bold, transformative legislation laid out by the president. For the sake of America’s families, communities and future, Congress must get this done.”
