As Maine loggers grapple with low wood pulp prices and layoffs, Golden pushes House to include renewable biomass provision in new clean energy bill


WASHINGTON -- The U.S. House of Representatives passed an amendment to the Clean Economy Jobs and Innovation Act yesterday offered by Congressman Jared Golden (ME-02) to support Maine loggers and the biomass industry and promote Maine's role in the renewable energy economy.

Golden's amendment would improve the way that biomass is inspected and permitted and ensure that federal funds directed at clean energy workforce development programs include the biomass industry.
