STATEMENT: The Trump Administration’s Tax Extenders Deal Will Cost American Jobs
Washington, D.C. — In response to the passage of a tax extenders bill that excluded critical tax credits for solar, electric vehicles, and energy storage technologies, Center for American Progress Senior Vice President for Energy and Environment Policy Christy Goldfuss offered the following statement:
Once again, the Trump administration has broken its promise to fight for American jobs and manufacturing. This deal will cost clean energy jobs throughout the country and stunt the growth of new industries everywhere from Arizona to Michigan, all while making our path to a 100 percent clean future that much harder. This administration’s vendetta against clean energy jobs will cost American workers and surrender American leadership to countries such as China.
