September 21, 2021 | Press Releases

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) was announced as one of Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions’ (CRES) Clean Energy Champions for 2021. CRES annually honors federal policymakers who have gone above and beyond in driving and supporting clean energy legislation. Portman is one of four 2021 awardees who will be formally recognized at the CRES Clean Energy Champions Reception tonight — the second day of National Clean Energy Week (NCEW).

“I’m honored to receive the 2021 CRES Clean Energy Champion award,” Portman said. “Clean energy solutions help foster innovation and job creation, and I will continue to work with my colleagues to deliver results for Ohio.”

“Senator Rob Portman’s nomination stands out because of his numerous accomplishments over the last ten years in the United States Senate,” CRES Executive Director Heather Reams said. “Most recently, Senator Portman worked to develop and pass the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which includes the Federal Permitting Reform and Jobs Act, making FAST-41 permitting benefits permanent. We are honored to recognize him as a 2021 Clean Energy Champion.”
