"Democrats Pledge To Protect, Expand Biden’s Climate Corps"

"Congressional Democrats are vowing to defend President Joe Biden’s new federal green jobs program from future Republican attacks.

Biden took executive action Wednesday to create the American Climate Corps after Congress failed to include such a program in the Inflation Reduction Act. It’s a step for which many Democrats — particularly progressives — have been clamoring for years.

But the executive order is also one that a GOP administration down the line could easily dismantle. Indeed, Republican lawmakers who have long railed against the concept will now likely look to deny the effort funding."
