Top 10 BlueGreen Alliance Priorities in the Build Back Better Act
Building back better is America’s path toward a clean, prosperous, and equitable future. We need a recovery For America, By America, that addresses the intersecting crises of climate change, income inequality, and racial injustice while creating high-quality, good-paying jobs, and delivering a more equitable and cleaner economy.
Voters do not want to wait. In six key states (MI, MN, OH, PA, WV, and WI), Democratic, Republican, and independent voters overwhelmingly (90%) said repairing and modernizing the nation’s physical infrastructure, rebuilding and retooling American manufacturing, and modernizing our factories to build products and technology in the United States is very or fairly important to them.1 These voters also placed a high priority on strengthening America’s social infrastructure, public services, and human service workforce (84%). Increasing the production of clean energy and investing in innovative clean technologies was widely supported (72%). The time to act is now.
The bipartisan deal is a start, not the end, of what we need to build back better. Congress must act boldly and invest in America to build a clean, prosperous, and equitable economy.
