  • While clean energy is important to achieving climate goals, it is not the proper role of the federal government to impose overburdensome mandates.
  • Instead of mandates, the Biden administration should look to markets to reduce energy-related emissions.

“The Biden administration is outlining renewable energy tax credits and a mandate that utilities shift to carbon-free power as its priorities for the second Democrats-only measure to follow the bipartisan infrastructure deal.”
