The Offshore Wind for Territories Act Supports Stronger U.S. Territories

NOIA President Randall Luthi released the following statement after Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Senator Brian Schatz (D-HI) introduced the Offshore Wind for Territories Act to the Senate:

“NOIA applauds the bipartisan leadership of Senator Cassidy and Senator Schatz in introducing the Offshore Wind for Territories Act to the Senate. The U.S. territories are in need of improved energy security and new sources of economic growth. This bill can achieve both for our territories.

“Thanks to the leadership of Representative Jenniffer González-Colón (R-PR), the House already has its version of this bill. NOIA is excited to work with both Chambers to pass this bipartisan legislation to improve the lives of the millions of Americans who call the U.S. territories home.”
