Manchin’s ‘Dirty Deal’ is Defeated Once Again

Washington D.C. — Today, after Senator Manchin’s “permitting reform” provision drew opposition from both parties and frontline communities, the National Defense Authorization Act moved forward without Manchin’s Dirty Deal provisions, marking another major win for climate champions and people power.

Jeff Ordower, 350.org’s North America Director, responded: 

“Through the power of mass mobilization, frontline leaders and the climate movement have again sent a decisive message: Senator Manchin cannot get away with last-ditch efforts to push forward his fossil fuel fast tracking bill. The Dirty Deal has once again been defeated, and today we can breathe a sigh of relief. The fossil fuel industry will keep trying these secretive, last minute efforts to push forward dirty deals, so we will continue to be alert and we won’t let up the fight. Our communities continue to show that people power can win over earth-destroying financial interests, and we will keep fighting these deals until all fossil fuels are kept in the ground.”
