LEADING POLITICAL ENVIRONMENTAL GROUP SUPPORTS PUSH FOR GREEN PROGRAMS IN CORONAVIRUS ECONOMIC RECOVERY PACKAGE
TRENTON – The following statement is from Ed Potosnak, Executive Director of New Jersey League of Conservation Voters, supporting efforts for spending on green programs as a way to stimulate the economy.
“While we are reeling with the massive, worldwide impacts of COVID-19, we must continue to move our country forward during these turbulent times. Climate action can play a critical role to stimulate our economy by creating good local green jobs,” said Ed Potosnak, Executive Director, of New Jersey League of Conservation Voters. “We support extending federal tax credits for smart and critical investments in electric-vehicle sales and charging stations, spending for climate-resilient infrastructure and boosting existing programs such as energy efficiency and home weatherization. Creating a 21st century clean energy economy means new good local jobs and cleaner air and water for our families and businesses. We implore Congress to include these environmental investments into the coronavirus economic stimulus package.”
