Support American energy jobs

Our nation is in the midst of a clean energy revolution. More and more of our electricity is being generated by renewable energy–as much as 22 percent in 2017–and we are only beginning to utilize one of our great untapped renewable resources: offshore wind.
Our nation’s very first offshore wind farm came online in 2016 off the coast of New England and others are in the early stages of development thanks to state and federal partnerships. In order to take full advantage of this burgeoning field,
we need to make sure American workers are fully trained and ready to pave the way for growth and innovation in this new American energy industry.

the Treasury Department attempted to remedy these issues through regulation, the resulting rules are confusing and create unnecessary obstacles to compliance for small, seasonal employers.
