E&C Republicans Call Out President Biden’s Reckless Greenhouse Gas Fund
- January 31, 2024
The Energy and Commerce Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee held a hearing with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to examine President Biden’s $27-billion so-called “Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF).” The hearing further exposed how the program is vulnerable to waste, fraud, and abuse.
Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA): One serious contender for a share of this 14-billion dollars is Power Forward Communities. This new entity, which has been formed to secure a Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund award, is a coalition of several organizations, including Rewiring America.
Rewiring America’s leadership includes a former Obama White House appointee, a former employee of liberal political action committees, and Democratic politician Stacey Abrams. Rewiring America is a project of the Windward Fund, which is controlled by Arabella Advisors. Arabella Advisors funnels donations to various left-leaning nonprofits.
To give another example, the board of another applicant, the Coalition for Green Capital, includes former Biden administration officials and former senior staffer of the Democratic National Committee. These include David Hayes, a former senior official of President Biden’s White House Climate Policy Office, who was central to advancing President Biden’s climate agenda.”
