ICYMI: Secretaries Walsh, Granholm visited Los Angeles-area clean technology hub to highlight benefits of Bipartisan Innovation Act
LOS ANGELES – Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh and Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm toured the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator on April 21, 2022, to highlight the Biden-Harris administration's Bipartisan Innovation Act. They emphasized the need to expand research and development in clean energy technologies, boost domestic manufacturing to lower prices, establish more secure supply chains and create good-paying jobs.
"The Biden-Harris administration believes climate change can be addressed in a way that expands opportunity and greater equity in our economy. The Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator shows that by combining innovation, investment, community engagement and workforce training, a successful transition to clean energy is possible," said Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh. "The Bipartisan Innovation Act would deliver billions more for domestic manufacturing which would create good jobs, lower prices and scale-up innovations like those we've seen here at Cleantech."
Secretaries Walsh and Granholm were joined by Reps. Norma Torres, Linda Sanchez, Maxine Waters and Judy Chu; and by Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Chair Hilda Solis.
