BCSE Statement on Passage of House Infrastructure Bill, H.R. 2
Washington, DC – Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) President Lisa Jacobson made the following statement regarding House passage of the INVEST in America Act, H.R. 2.
“The BCSE is pleased to see strong clean energy provisions incorporated into the House-passed INVEST in America Act, such as clean transportation, energy, and tax measures. It is our hope that these measures can be paired with the many bipartisan clean energy bills in the Senate, such as the American Energy Innovation and Leadership Act and the America’s Transportation Infrastructure Act, so the U.S. can accelerate investment in clean energy infrastructure, help the economy recover, assist the domestic manufacturing sector, and maintain America’s international competitiveness.
“BCSE appreciates the serious consideration Congress is providing to modernizing and expanding U.S. infrastructure. This objective is of prime importance to clean energy sectors. The federal government plays a unique role in that it can enable policies that will incentivize and leverage private sector participation and capital that will spur even greater improvement of our nation’s infrastructure.”
