Stabenow: Clean Energy Programs in Recovery Act are Creating Jobs in Michigan

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, a member of the Senate Committees on Energy and Natural Resources and Finance, emphasized at a hearing today that the clean energy funding in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) is creating jobs in Michigan. The hearing examined the Department of Energy's implementation of programs under ARRA.

"Thanks to clean energy programs in the Recovery Act, manufacturers across our state have received billions in tax cuts for investments that are creating jobs in Michigan. I co-authored the tax cuts for fourteen manufacturers in Michigan to build facilities that make advanced technologies such as wind turbines and solar panels. In addition, nine of our companies received over half of the available battery funding to power the vehicles of the future. Without these investments, we will lose the race with other countries like China that spends $288 million a day to develop clean energy technology. I will continue leading the effort in the Senate and working with the Administration to secure additional tax cuts and investments as part of the Senate Jobs Agenda so we can put people back to work."

--U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow
