ACP Statement on House Passage of Debt Limit Bill

In response the U.S. House of Representatives’ 217-215 vote repealing key clean energy incentives as part of a debt limit package, American Clean Power Association (ACP) CEO Jason Grumet issued the following statement:

“No American industry enjoys being used as a pawn in partisan political negotiations. The American Clean Power Association is nevertheless confident that Congress and the Administration will not interrupt the burst of private sector investment in American clean energy production and manufacturing. In the last nine months, forty-six new clean energy manufacturing and production facilities have been announced, creating high wage jobs in communities across the country.

“There is real work to do to support this American energy revolution. Congress must act to enable more efficient project permitting, facilitate the construction of new energy transmission and distribution and help American employers support and train hundreds of thousands of new workers. ACP is eager to work with Republicans and Democrats who share our commitment to secure, affordable and clean domestic energy.”
