In response to the introduction of the bill today, the BlueGreen Alliance released the following statement from Interim Co-Executive Director Mike Williams:
“We know that we do not need to choose between a clean environment and a strong economy—we can and must have both. The International Climate Accountability Act puts us back on the right path to build that future.
“The opportunity before us is significant. If we do this right—by investing in infrastructure, job-training, and the development of the technologies of the future—we will create countless good jobs and lead the world in developing, manufacturing, and deploying the next generation of clean technology. We urge the Senate to quickly pass this bill.”
