Rabe says some environmental legislation still possible

Though President Biden's ambitious Build Back Better plan has stalled in Congress, some elements of his environmental agenda could still pass before the midterm elections in November.  

Ford School professor Barry Rabe told the Los Angeles Times that clean energy tax credits, a key to making Biden’s 2030 greenhouse gas emmissions reduction goal a reality, could still move forward. 

“These are pretty well established. These tax credits have, traditionally anyway, had a pretty substantial body of support, particularly in states that produce a lot of renewable energy, and many of those are more moderate or conservative states,” he said. “So I think the energy tax credit in some fashion is probably still on the table.”
