OVER 300 BUSINESSES ENDORSE PRESIDENT BIDEN’S BUILD BACK BETTER AGENDA, CALL ON CONGRESS TO IMMEDIATELY ACT TO ADDRESS THE CLIMATE CRISIS
Washington, DC — Today, more than 300 American business leaders signed a letter calling on Congress to immediately address the climate crisis by passing President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda into law via reconciliation. These business leaders noted that the climate crisis is here, that it is already impacting the livelihoods and wellbeing of hundreds of millions of Americans, and that everyone in the nation is at risk, regardless of where they live. Importantly, these business leaders not only endorsed the climate provisions within the President’s Build Back Better Agenda, but also explicitly expressed support for the revenue measures needed to pay for the investments. This support is particularly timely because earlier today, Senator Schumer and Speaker Pelosi jointly announced agreement on a funding framework between House and Senate Leadership and the White House.
