Virginia has made necessary climate action progress, but our work is just beginning. Climate change does not recognize state or national borders, and so we need determined leadership at the federal level. The Build Back Better Act (BBB) is that essential next step. This House version of the bill passed with the support of Virginia’s climate champions, including Democratic Reps. Elaine Luria, Robert C. “Bobby” Scott, A. Donald McEachin, Abigail Spanberger, Don Beyer, Jennifer Wexton and Gerald E. Connolly. If signed into law, the BBB will make the bold investments we need to reach our clean energy potential, cut carbon pollution by at least 50 percent by 2030 and create good-paying jobs in the process.
