Statement From Gregory Wetstone, President and CEO of the American Council on Renewable Energy:
“Tonight’s House action on the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the rule for the Build Back Better Act represents tangible progress on the infrastructure and climate agenda in Washington, D.C. Specifically, the bipartisan infrastructure bill now on its way to the White House for President Biden’s signature contains important new policies and federal investments that will accelerate the large-scale transmission we need to build a modern and decarbonized grid. Additionally, the approval of the rule for the Build Back Better Act clears the way for a near-term floor vote on the Build Back Better Act whose clean energy tax platform lays a credible foundation for the emissions reductions we know we are going to need to meet our global climate commitments. We call on the House to act expeditiously on the Build Back Better Act, and look forward to working closely with policymakers in both chambers to pass final Build Back Better Act legislation capable of delivering on the Biden administration’s scientifically driven climate objectives.”
