Provisions included in the House passed Build Better Back Act (BBBA) legislation are essential to getting this job done. The bill makes an historic investment in the expansion and retooling of domestic clean energy, vehicle and component manufacturing, the transformation of our industrial sector to reduce emissions and enhance competitiveness, as well as the necessary efforts to build out robust supply chains for critical clean technologies—all while building good jobs nationwide and investing in the communities that need it most. We urge the Senate to pass it.
All of the United States’ major economic competitors—particularly China—are making significant and strategic investments in the production and deployment of these technologies. If the U.S. fails to make commensurate strategic investments over the next decade as part of BBBA legislation, America’s manufacturing sector and its workers will fall even further behind in the most important global economic race of our time.
This factsheet discusses how the BBBA will result in erious action to address climate change and strengthen the U.S. economy for all requires substantial investment in rebuilding our manufacturing sector in ways that will deeply reduce emissions while building domestic supply chains and creating and protecting good jobs for workers and communities across the nation.
