The Appropriations Bill with PA IPL & JEA – September 20, 2023

September 20, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Making climate-friendly appropriations a priority in the Federal budget

Join Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light and the Jewish Earth Alliance on September 20 at 7:00pm for an informational session on the Appropriations Bill. We will discuss making climate-friendly appropriations a priority in the Federal budget by understanding the budgeting process and what we need to tell our officials about our care and concern for the climate.

Speaker: Madison Mayhew, National IPL Federal Policy Manager

September 30th is the deadline for Congress to pass a budget, so Congress will be focused on appropriations throughout the month. The appropriations/budget process is complex and a huge team of well paid lobbyists are trying to persuade Congress to consider their industry’s interests. However, when citizens raise their collective voices, we can also have a say how funds get appropriated. We need to tell our Senators and Representatives that climate solutions are important to us.
