Testimony of Michael Williams to the House Subcommittee on Rural Development, Agriculture, Trade, and Entrepreneurship
The BlueGreen Alliance's Deputy Director Michael Williams today testified in front of the House Committee on Small Businesses Subcommittee on Rural Development, Agriculture, Trade, and Entrepreneurship during their hearing on growing the clean energy economy.
In his testimony, Williams spoke about how small businesses are critical to our economy, and a major expansion of clean energy is vital if we are going to succeed in the fight against climate change. It’s time we brought this thinking together, and in doing so we must strive to do it right and lift up American workers.
He concluded with, “growing the clean economy—if done right—is a significant opportunity to ensure a more equitable society, increase U.S. global competitiveness, support and grow small businesses, and create quality, good-paying, union jobs across the country.”
