WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to the Senate voting to pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal today, CEBN President Lynn Abramson offered the following comments:
“CEBN applauds the Senate for passing the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act on a strong bipartisan basis. We are hopeful that this bill will pass the House and deliver historic investments in energy reliability and resilience, transmission, and key RD&D programs across the federal government. This is a critical first step to addressing energy infrastructure needs.
We urge Congress to build on today’s success and enact policies and investments in additional legislation under consideration that expand the use of energy efficiency and clean energy solutions in our homes and businesses across the country. This includes leveraging the tax code to spur further investment in clean energy deployment and directing additional resources toward advanced energy and transportation infrastructure that will strengthen our energy resilience.”
