Thank you for your interest in taking this action. This campaign is now closed.
WWF thanks everyone who spoke out in support of having strong "green" provisions in the economic recovery bill that is moving through Congress. The House passed an $819 billion recovery package on January 28, 2009, and the Senate passed its version on February 10. Representatives from the House and Senate will meet soon to resolve differences between the two bills.
The proposed legislation will create hundreds of thousands of new high-paying jobs in industries that are working to reform our energy economy and wean us off our addiction to fossil fuels. A well-designed economic recovery package can be major step towards a more secure and more sustainable energy future.
