Leger Fernández is co-sponsoring the bill with U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici, a Democrat from Oregon, and is optimistic that they will receive support from members of Congress on both sides of the aisle. “Our nation’s important transition to clean energy will create significant economic growth,” Bonamici said in a press release. “For that transition to be just, we must not leave out or leave behind states and Tribes with longstanding economic ties to fossil fuel industries.” She further said that the economic development grants will “empower communities to navigate the clean energy transformation of our economy and participate in the jobs it will bring.”
