  • Granholm is likely to receive sharp questioning on a recent Biden administration proposal to mandate that 2/3 of new cars be electric by 2032.
  • Democrat chair Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) is likely to press Granholm for an Energy Department plan on permitting reform.
  • Manchin said on Tuesday in a statement announcing the committee's April/May agenda: “Our permitting process is broken, and although political agendas got in the way of passing comprehensive reform last Congress, I have not stopped fighting for changes that that will enable us to get American produced energy to the people that need it, drive down energy costs, support our allies and help us achieve energy security.
  • "These upcoming hearings are vital to understanding how we can achieve bipartisan consensus that makes it possible for America to build again and maintain our status as a global energy leader. Americans cannot wait any longer, and neither can I.”
