NY Renews, in partnership with NYLPI, released a statement in response to the House’s passage of the Build Back Better Act (BBB) in late November. The coalition advises that New York must implement the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) and that the People’s Government should use CLCPA as guidance for implementing BBB.

“While NY Renews celebrates passage of [the Build Back Better Act], the people’s government must ensure instances of racism and bigotry exercised as part of the implementation of the New Deal… are not replicated.
Implementing BBB from the lens of New York’s watershed Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA)… will assist with this undertaking.”
