ABMA continues to make the rounds on Capitol Hill talking with Senate offices on prospects for a modified Build Back Better package. National media are reporting on conversations between Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) about a deal that could pass the Senate. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm had this to say this week at a conference in Washington on renewable energy tax credits, which will be at the heart of any package that comes together– “I am feeling actually pretty bullish about it at this very moment. We’re not going to see the whole Build Back Better agenda; we’ve got to be realistic about that. But I do think that at least some version of those tax credits is still possible.”
