“I hope Sen. Manchin really comes around and sees the importance of how necessary this is for our state  because, for one thing, our infrastructure needs a lot of help. And this is going to bring in a lot of money. It’s going to help create jobs in the clean energy sector, and this is not overnight, this is going to be a gradual change. We are an energy state but coal is disappearing over time. We need to get in on the ground floor of getting these new good paying energy jobs and bring them in here and stimulate our economy, and so this is going to be a tremendous bill for West Virginia, I see great things coming out of this for this state. I’m definitely in favor of it, and I hope we can get everyone to get in agreement with it….

Delegate Jim Barach was a meteorologist and speaks about how the Build Back Better Act will help fight climate change and create jobs.

“The climate is changing and we need to do something about it. The Build Back Better Act , in effect ,will bring clean energy jobs to the region, in fact, to the whole country and to the whole world. We can save our planet, we can create new jobs, we can reduce the cost of energy with renewable sources. i’m very excited about it. I’m pleading to Senator Manchin to see the good in this and to come on over and vote for it. Let’s get West Virginia and the rest of the country in line with this. I see great things coming from this bill and it’s going to take us into the future.”
