US Senate approves repeal of solar tariff moratorium



In a week runs in the houseThe US Senate has voted to approve HJRes.39. This measure would reverse a two-year moratorium on new solar tariffs imposed by the Biden administration in June 2022.

The voting result was 56–41, mainly along party lines. Rand Paul of Kentucky was the only Republican to vote against the measure. Nine Democrats voted in favor.

“The Senate-passed Congressional Review Act resolution to repeal the Biden administration’s solar tariff moratorium is a threat to the U.S. economy and the clean energy transition,” said Gregory Wetstone, president and CEO of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE).

“The bill seeks to impose retroactive tariffs that will stop the sun from rising in the United States and undermine the administration’s climate goals.”

HJRes.39 now moves to President Biden’s desk, where he is expected to veto the measure.
