NOIA Supports Offshore Wind Jobs and Opportunities Act
Washington, D.C. – Ahead of House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources hearing, Building a 21st Century American Offshore Wind Workforce, NOIA President Randall Luthi submitted a letter in support of H.R. 3068, Offshore Wind Jobs and Opportunities Act.
“I want to share the National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) support for the Offshore Wind Jobs and Opportunities Act. We agree with the sponsors of this legislation that the coming offshore wind energy boom in the U.S. will need a skilled workforce trained and capable of operating in the unique offshore environment. Throughout the United States there are workers who are skilled, but they will require specific training and expertise to work offshore supporting the rapidly expanding wind industry.”
