NYLCV Statement on the American Jobs Plan

NYLCV released the following statement in response to President Biden’s American Jobs Plan announcement:

Julie Tighe, President of the New York League of Conservation Voters, said, “The American Jobs Plan shows that President Biden is prioritizing the types of programs we need to avert a climate crisis. Investing in zero-emission transportation, clean water, and green buildings will protect our environment while also creating good-paying clean energy jobs. Our climate recovery goes hand-in-glove with our economic recovery. Now, we will work with stakeholders to ensure that these investments prioritize communities which are overburdened by the effects of climate change. Thank you to President Biden for your bold leadership.”
