“The deal announced today is very encouraging news, and we’re eager to see the details. The reported clean energy investments would deliver what the American people want: lower energy costs, healthier communities and significant progress on climate change. It also will help American businesses be more competitive in the world while creating good jobs. We urge Congress to move quickly to get this done. Our families and communities, especially those of us living on the frontlines of the climate crisis, need these fiscally responsible investments now and for the future."
