“Tax Policy: Democrats Escalate Pressure For Clean Energy Incentives”

“Democrats on both sides of the Capitol are stepping up pressure to see clean energy assistance included in future COVID-19 relief efforts.

In the House, which is readying to bring infrastructure legislation to the floor in the coming weeks, 180 Democrats urged leaders yesterday to address the “devastating impacts of COVID-19 on jobs in the clean energy industry.”

“Before the current crisis, this sector employed 3.4 million people, two thirds of whom worked at companies with less than 20 employees,” wrote the Democrats, led by Reps. Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, Matt Cartwright of Pennsylvania and Mike Levin of California.”
