(WASHINGTON, DC – Jun. 27, 2019)—Following the passage of a tax extenders package in the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee last week, the Environmental Defense Fund is calling on Congressional leadership to take more action.

“The House Ways & Means Committee has the chance to advance incentives that will reduce climate pollution and help unlock solutions to a clean economy.

“We need legislative action now that will catalyze private sector investments to put more electric vehicles on our roads, increase electricity storage capacity, and boost offshore wind energy production.

“We call on the House to demonstrate leadership and seize this opportunity to advance these crucial climate incentives.”
