(Washington D.C., January 5, 2020) Today, EDF Action, the advocacy partner of Environmental Defense Fund, launched a digital ad campaign thanking Members of Congress for voting to put American families first – providing needed COVID-19 relief and investing in the American economy while helping to combat climate change.

“The American public is facing the dual crises of the coronavirus pandemic and climate change. This recovery bill puts health, jobs and climate solutions front and center,” said EDF Action Senior Vice President of Political Affairs Elizabeth Gore. “It has never been more apparent that it is time to act on climate change, and power up a fair and just recovery. We thank these leaders for working to build back our economy and protect the health of American families.”

The recovery package restores the Environmental Protection Agency to its near pre-Trump funding levels (second highest funding level ever), sets new limits on super-polluters like HFCs, and sets strong protections for clean water, while providing an extension of clean energy tax incentives.

The ads thank Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (NY) and Senators Kyrsten Sinema (AZ), Mark Kelly (AZ), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Tom Carper (DE), Catherine Cortez-Masto (NV), Jacky Rosen (NV), Ron Wyden (OR) and Joe Manchin (WV) along with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (CA-12) and Representatives Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01), Ann Kirkpatrick (AZ-02), Mike Levin (CA-49), Stephanie Murphy (FL-07), Lucy McBath (GA-06), Cindy Axne (IA-03), Sean Casten (IL-06), Jared Golden (ME-02), Elissa Slotkin (MI-08), Angie Craig (MN-02), Susie Lee (NV-03), Steven Horsford (NV-04), Paul Tonko (NY-20), Earl Blumenauer (OR-03), Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-01), Susan Wild (PA-07), Matt Cartwright (PA-08), Conor Lamb (PA-17), Elaine Luria (VA-02), Abigail Spanberger (VA-07) and Kim Schrier (WA-08).
