The House of Representatives could pass the biggest nuclear bailout in American history. We need you to speak up for real climate solutions and tell your Representatives to STOP these corrupt nuclear subsidies.
As we feared, the nuclear lobby got Congress to put a massive nuclear subsidy into the $3.5 trillion Build Back Better Act last week. The House of Representatives plans to vote on the bill soon. We cannot give up—our whole climate and clean energy future is at stake.
Look up your Rep's office or call (202) 224-3121 and use or adapt the following script:
Hello, my name is FIRST NAME LAST NAME. I am calling from [CITY/STATE] regarding the Build Back Better Act, specifically The Zero-Emission Nuclear Power Production Credit Act of 2021. I am calling to ask Rep. [YOUR REP’S NAME] to oppose the inclusion of this irresponsible and corrupt 50 billion dollar nuclear bailout in the act. I would like to see [YOUR REP’S NAME] advocate for the carbon-free, renewable energy future we need and keep corrupt and unnecessary nuclear subsidies out of the Build Back Better Act. This proposed bailout for nuclear energy would divert tens of billions from safer, cleaner, more emissions-reducing, and more job-producing energy sources. The Build Back Better Act will do more for climate, jobs, and justice without a nuclear bailout and reactor subsidies, by simply investing in the transition to 100% renewable energy. Thank you.
