Companies Call on Congress, Biden Administration to Act on Clean Energy Tax Package in Reconciliation

Washington, D.C. - Today, the Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) joins by over 230 companies and 50 stakeholder groups that support clean energy, energy efficiency, and clean transportation in urging Congressional leadership and the Biden Administration to keep working and pass the energy tax package through reconciliation.

“The energy tax package that is under consideration is transformational in terms of its impact. It will help to lower energy costs for consumers and enhance our nation’s economic competitiveness and security. BCSE, joined by energy industry leaders and stakeholders, urges Congress to pursue every pathway to include this tax package in the reconciliation bill,” remarked BCSE President Lisa Jacobson.

As stated in the industry letter:

"The energy tax package negotiated as part of the reconciliation process will fight inflation by reducing the cost of energy for American families and businesses, decreasing the deficit, and building a pipeline of good paying jobs in every State in the country, and across numerous skill levels and sectors. The energy package will also make significant emission reductions over the next decade and advance U.S. competitiveness and domestic manufacturing and increase our energy security.

“The opportunities are too great to abandon, and the cost of inaction is too high not to make every effort for success. A window of opportunity remains, and we urge you to take it.”
