We urge our leaders to pass a budget with investments that will improve Colorado’s environment and our quality of life.

Terrible air quality puts Coloradans’ health and way of life at risk. We can clean up our air, but only if we act now.

STATEMENT: Build Back Better passes the U.S. House

All eyes turn to the U.S. Senate where Bennet, Hickenlooper have fought for climate provisions in the bill

 

DENVER — Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 5376, the Build Back Better Act. Representatives Jason Crow, Diana DeGette, Joe Neguse, and Ed Perlmutter voted in support.

Conservation Colorado deputy director Jessica Goad released the following statement in response:

“The Build Back Better Act is the transformative climate and environmental justice bill that Coloradans support and that our country needs. It will put the U.S. on the path to cutting our climate pollution in half by 2030 and invest directly in communities of color that are on the front lines of the climate crisis — all while creating millions of good-paying union jobs and saving people money on their energy bills. The U.S. Senate should act quickly to pass the Build Back Better Act and send it to President Biden’s desk. Colorado cannot wait any longer.”
