New Jersey LCV Celebrates Signage of the Inflation Reduction Act into Law
New Jersey League of Conservation Voters Executive Director Ed Potosnak issued the following statement in response to President Biden signing the Inflation Reduction Act:
“President Biden has signed one of the most significant pieces of legislation in our lifetimes. It will literally help save the planet.
The historic Inflation Reduction Act turns the climate crisis into an opportunity by investing hundreds of billions of dollars to build a 21st century economy powered by clean energy, creating millions of good-paying union jobs while investing $60 billion to address our nation’s shameful legacy of environmental racism.
I commend President Biden and the New Jersey Congressional delegation for their leadership and support of such a transformative legislation which is essential to building a prosperous, sustainable future for our state, our nation, and our planet.
New Jersey LCV and our partners plan to seize this historic moment for our state to advocate for further reductions in climate pollution, investments in renewable energy while lowering energy prices for working families, and the creation of good-paying union jobs in the new green economy that can’t be outsourced.”
