Congress Supports Clean Energy Programs in Omnibus
Washington, DC – Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) President, Lisa Jacobson, made the following statement regarding the Fiscal Year 2018 Omnibus Spending Bill enacted by Congress.
“The Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) wishes to express our appreciation for the steps Congress has taken to raise the budget caps and to enact the Fiscal Year 2018 Omnibus Appropriations Bill, and we are pleased the President signed the legislation earlier today.
“The market dynamism and innovation we are seeing in the clean energy sector has come as the result of the partnership between the federal government and clean energy industries and from DOE’s world class research, both pure and applied. Congress recognizes this and continues to fund important clean energy programs at the Department of Energy and to invest in energy research development and deployment that will help to sustain growth in clean energy markets.
“As Congress continues its work on Fiscal Year 2019 budget and tax issues in the coming months the Council encourages Congress to maintain the positive momentum that has been achieved,” Jacobson said.
