On April 1, 2021, NASEO issued a statement supporting many of the energy elements of the Biden Administration’s Jobs and Infrastructure Plan. Of particular interest to NASEO members is the call for electric grid modernization and resilience; electric vehicle infrastructure; energy retrofit of two million low-income homes and buildings; port and transit investments; retrofit and modernization of state and local public facilities and schools; investment in clean energy and climate technology research and innovation; and support for carbon capture, advanced nuclear, hydrogen and other emerging clean energy options. NASEO will work on a bipartisan basis with the Biden Administration and Congress to ensure that resources provided to states retain flexibility and allow states to meet shared state-federal goals in ways that best address statespecific needs and opportunities.
