We only have a few days left to STOP the crooked $50 billion nuclear bailout.
As we feared, the nuclear lobby got Congress to put the subsidy into the $3.5 trillion Build Back Better Act this week. The House of Representatives plans to vote on the bill as soon as Monday, September 20. We cannot give up—our whole climate and clean energy future is at stake, and we still have four days to convince our Congressmembers to do the right thing.
So we have to raise our voices louder than ever.
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.
