  • The GND proposals are instructive and can serve as a blueprint for a potential climate and energy package for the next Democratic president to propose to Congress, or to help inform a bipartisan infrastructure bill.
  • This alert details what is and isn’t included in that framework, and provides some thoughts on where a GND goes from here. MORE
