Politico discusses how clean energy backers’ anger grows as House ignores aid plea. Some clean energy backers say House Democrats’ latest $3 trillion bill blows another chance to help the ailing sector.
Clean energy companies and advocates are blasting Democrats in the House for neglecting to give the industry any help in its pandemic relief bills, even as the sector reports hundreds of thousands of job losses and the chamber offers aid to sectors like cannabis and biofuels.
Some industry trade associations and green groups appear content to wait for a future aid bill. But other clean energy backers say the House Democrats’ latest $3 trillion bill blows another chance to help the ailing sector and at the same time push one of the party’s top policy priorities of addressing climate change — and they’re tired of waiting until next time.
