Bennet Statement on House Passage of Build Back Better Act

Legislation Includes Several Bennet-Championed Priorities, Including an Extension of the Expanded Child Tax Credit and a Historic Investment in America’s Forests

Washington, D.C.— Today, Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Build Back Better Act:

“It has been a long time since the American people saw the federal government working for them and believed that anything we did in Washington made any difference in their lives. With the Build Back Better Act, along with the bipartisan infrastructure bill, Americans will finally see themselves in the work we’re pursuing in Washington. 

“The Build Back Better Act will make the largest investment ever to fight climate change and protect America’s forests. It will make child care more affordable and preschool more available to millions of families across Colorado and the country. And it will continue the Child Tax Credit that has supported over 90% of kids in our state. The Senate now has an opportunity to strengthen the bill even further to support working families and grow the economy from the middle out.”
