Support A Clean, Green Jobs Bill in the Senate

Effective job creation legislation would encourage clean energy and green infrastructure, while protecting our environment

In February 2010, UCS joined 14 other organizations in urging the Senate to maximize the benefit of job creation legislation by including clean energy and green infrastructure provisions.

Among the letter’s recommendations:

  • Home Star and other efficiency retrofit programs, to put Americans to work and enable families to save money and protect the environment
  • Funding the Advanced Energy Manufacturing Tax Credit and Treasury Grant program to encourage home-grown clean energy manufacturing and deployment
  • New investments in improved public transit, rail, roads, and safe bridges
  • Put Americans back to work to restore our natural resources through the Public Lands Service Corps and Forest Service

All these and more would put hundreds of thousands of Americans back to work, protect our health and environment, and ensure that America repowers with clean energy.
