BCSE Statement on Republican Leadership’s Debt Limit Proposal
April 25, 2023

Washington, D.C. – Lisa Jacobson, President of the Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE), offered the following statement in response to House Republican Leadership’s proposed debt limit legislation that would eliminate or modify the Inflation Reduction Act’s (IRA) clean energy and energy efficiency incentives and programs enacted during the 117th Congress:

“Now is not the time to turn away from progress. We know that the energy transition is hardwired into the economy. The clean energy and energy efficiency incentives and programs included in the Inflation Reduction Act are already driving new investment, the onshoring of manufacturing, and the creation of jobs that are critical to creating a more secure and prosperous America. Let’s keep the forward momentum and work together across political lines to identify opportunities to modernize our infrastructure, deliver affordable and reliable energy, and increase American competitiveness.”
