Environmental, Labor Groups Urge Investments in Clean Energy Manufacturing To Remain in Infrastructure Plan
Environmental and labor advocacy groups on Tuesday called for electric vehicle manufacturing incentives to remain a key component of any infrastructure spending bill, arguing that these investments are critical to the future of domestic manufacturing. The groups made their case in a letter to President Joe Biden on Tuesday as he prepares to visit a Michigan Ford facility that is producing the new all-electric F-150. The letter calls for tax credits, grants, loans, and other incentive programs that can help to build a globally competitive domestic automotive industry and supply chain supporting well-paying manufacturing jobs.
Groups signing the letter include the BlueGreen Alliance, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the League of Conservation Voters, Sierra Club, Environmental Defense Fund, the Center for American Progress, and the Union of Concerned Scientists.
