"After four years where the United States was often too disruptive or absent on the world stage, I am pleased that President Biden has sent a clear message: America is back. This legislation backs that message with action. It restores American leadership around the world by responding to global health threats, including the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, confronting the climate crisis, and addressing urgent humanitarian needs."
"The resources included in the bill represent much-needed investments in diplomacy and development, which have been overshadowed by the defense budgets for far too long. While we still have a long way to go, we’re making progress."

And the Civilian Climate Corps will make a tremendous difference as we implement projects to reduce emissions."
"I’m proud that this bill makes long-overdue investments to care for our planet, fight the climate emergency, and meet our trust obligations to tribal nations. The bill prioritizes the protection and preservation of our landscapes and biodiversity."
