E&C Announces Joint Subcommittee Hearing on Securing America’s Clean Energy Supply Chain
Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ), Energy Subcommittee Chairman Bobby L. Rush (D-IL), and Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee Chairman Paul Tonko (D-NY) announced today that the two subcommittees will hold a joint hearing on Tuesday, November 16, at 10:30 a.m. (EST) in the John D. Dingell Room, 2123 of the Rayburn House Office Building. The hearing is entitled, “Securing America’s Future: Supply Chain Solutions for a Clean Energy Economy.”
“As the global transition to clean energy accelerates, it is imperative for our country to not only keep pace, but to develop the ability to produce the technologies needed for a net zero economy here at home,” said Pallone, Rush, and Tonko. “Congress has an important role to play in understanding this challenge and identifying new opportunities to develop and expand our domestic clean energy supply chains. In doing so, we can both revitalize American manufacturing and reduce our dependence on foreign countries. We look forward to discussing these issues with our panel of experts next week.”
This will be a hybrid hearing that includes both in person and remote member attendance via Cisco Webex video conferencing. Members of the public may view the hearing via live webcast accessible on the Energy and Commerce Committee’s website. Please note the webcast will not be available until the hearing begins.
