A coalition of environmental groups and other Democratic-aligned organizations are launching a lobbying campaign to pressure President Joe Biden to get the Senate to move on his stalled spending plan and the hundreds of billions of dollars in climate funding it contains. 

Plans call for digital ads and opinion essays released in battleground states as well as organized phone calls, meetings with key Senate officials and events such as caravans of bicycles and electric cars.
