Wealth for the Working Class: The Clean Energy Economy

The Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Workforce Development will hold a hybrid hearing titled: “Wealth for the Working Class: The Clean Energy Economy.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:00 A.M. on Tuesday, July 27, 2021 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building. Participating members can also join remotely via Zoom.

The clean energy economy has seen robust growth in recent decades and now presents the opportunity for widespread wealth creation that benefits American small businesses, their workers, and consumers. It has the potential to create millions of good-paying jobs spread across tens of thousands of businesses while simultaneously lowering energy prices for consumers.
