Granholm reiterated Tuesday that the stalled bill’s proposed clean energy tax credits are still part of the mix when lawmakers return from recess next week — this time under the moniker of Build a Better America. Granholm said she was “really hopeful actually that the climate portions will be addressed very soon.”

The secretary later said the legislation could help ease the increasing costs that clean energy technologies are facing amid supply chain constraints. “We don’t have state-owned enterprises, but we do have public-private partnerships and that’s how we do it in the U.S,” she said. “That’s why this next step in the Building a Better America Act is just so utterly critical because the direct funding, the direct tax credits up front, will help to bring down some of the pressure.”
