President Biden reinforces his commitment to building a climate-resilient Florida, while Republicans feign concern, sabotaging climate action behind the curtain.

Today, President Biden is visiting Florida to emphasize his commitment to building a climate-resilient state, tackling the climate crisis, and protecting frontline communities like Latinos who face disproportionate impacts during and after extreme weather disasters. While Republican leadership on a local and federal level continues to stand in the way of climate action, feigning concern and surprise when climate disasters hit, the President understands that climate change exacerbates extreme weather events like hurricanes, causing hurricanes like Ian and Fiona to intensify rapidly and wreak devastating havoc in their wake. That is why he has delivered much-needed investments through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the Inflation Reduction Law to help mitigate and better prepare our country for extreme weather events exacerbated by this crisis.
