“That means $ 250 billion in clean energy tax credits to develop and implement the latest in future generations of clean energy,” Pelosi said. “That means more than $ 100 billion plus for resilience, including climate-smart agriculture and nature-based climate solutions; another $ 100 billion for local and regional climate solutions … and more than $ 222 billion for environmental justice. “
Pelosi also reaffirmed that the chamber would vote next week on the legislation.
“That is our plan: to pass the bill the week of November 15, as indicated in our statements made at the time of passing the infrastructure bill,” said the speaker.
