NRDC: Infrastructure Plan Puts Needed Emphasis on Climate
WASHINGTON – Democratic congressional leaders today unveiled a broad plan to put climate change front and center as part of a five-year infrastructure spending plan.
The following is a statement from Stephanie Gidigbi, director of policy and partnerships in the Healthy People & Thriving Communities program at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC):
