BlueGreen Alliance Testifies at Infrastructure Hearing

Our partnership is firm in its belief that Americans don’t have to choose between a good job and a clean environment—we can and must have both. Investing in repairing and modernizing our nation’s infrastructure is a clear example of this principle. If done right, a federal infrastructure package will boost our economy and create millions of jobs, while simultaneously reducing pollution, combating climate change, and strengthening our communities.

The BlueGreen Alliance today testified during the House Committee on Energy and Commerce hearing on the LIFT America Act, a bill that would invest in infrastructure around the country to modernize and repair it. The BlueGreen Alliance’s Legislative Director Jessica Eckdish testified, “tackling the crisis of our aging infrastructure—if done right—is a significant opportunity to increase U.S. global competitiveness, create quality, family-sustaining jobs across the country, significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollution, and make our children healthier and our communities more more resilient.”
