In an op-ed published by RealClearEnergy, CRES President Heather Reams highlights how Republican Governors across the country are leading in the deployment of U.S.-made clean energy technologies despite Washington rhetoric and federal permitting challenges.
“There is a reason businesses and manufacturing are moving in droves to Republican-led states. They know that to have advanced manufacturing and clean energy technologies, you must be able to build it. But the truth is even the most targeted smart investment is meaningless without addressing the current regulatory and bureaucratic hurdles hampering production and slowing innovative technologies. Congress must enact permitting and licensing reforms to accelerate technology deployment and allow the United States to truly unleash American energy.
Republican governors are working to deploy U.S.-made energy technologies, responsibly develop American energy, and secure domestic supply chains. Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and House Republicans have developed an equally effective agenda to lead this nation. Now, it is up to all of Congress to take a page from these governors’ books.”
