Washington (September 22, 2021) – Senator Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) released the following statement today after the Biden administration nominated Massachusetts State Representative Maria Robinson to be Assistant Secretary in the Office of Electricity at the Department of Energy.
“From working to secure solar and energy efficiency projects for the Commonwealth, to serving as the only state legislator on the EPA Clean Air Act Advisory Committee, Maria Robinson has established herself as a bold and experienced leader in the fight for a clean energy future. With this nomination, I have no doubt that Maria will bring the same brilliance, passion, and knowledge to the Department of Energy that she has gifted to our Commonwealth. I will be working with my colleagues to support her swift confirmation.”
