ELI – Year One: An Environmental Review of the Biden Administration

Following a contentious election and in the midst of a global pandemic, Joseph R. Biden was inaugurated as the 46th President of the United States on January 21, 2021. In the first year, the Biden administration prioritized climate and environmental justice initiatives through executive actions, legislation, including the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, and international agreement at the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.
