WASHINGTON, D.C. —  Marty Durbin, senior vice president of policy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, issued the following statement in response to President Biden's Executive Order on federal government climate initiatives:

“While we are still reviewing the Executive Order, we appreciate President Biden’s continued focus on tackling climate change. The most important factors for the success of ambitious climate goals are the pace of innovation and the ability of government to modernize permitting processes that will allow for technology to be developed and deployed without undue delays. Enactment of the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will provide unprecedented investment for the development and deployment of clean energy technology, and government must be ready to facilitate, not slow down, needed progress.”
