This document outlines BlueGreen Alliance priorities for economic recovery under budget reconciliation. All economic recovery spending should meet the standards outlined in BGA’s full economic recovery priorities document, including labor standards, Buy America(n), community benefit agreements, and increased public sector capacity – we recommend a 10% overhead addition for all new programs. All of these policies must be designed in ways that reduce emissions, enhance environmental justice, uphold and improve labor standards and working conditions, and support vulnerable workers and deindustrialized communities.
