In response to the news, The Wilderness Society issued this statement 

Jamie Williams, president of The Wilderness Society said: 

“That climate investments are once again part of the Senate anti-inflation bill is beyond encouraging. We are thrilled that Senators Manchin and Schumer were able to reach agreement and make this historic commitment to reaching 40% emissions reductions by 2030. We look forward to seeing the final details on the clean energy and environmental justice provisions, and the contribution of public lands to the climate solution.”
