In other news, the Senate has confirmed Kristen Clarke to lead the Civil Rights Division of the Justice department.
Meanwhile, President Biden and Vladimir Putin will hold their first in-person meeting in Geneva next month.
Finally, the Biden administration is teaming up with the state of California to build an offshore wind energy farm.
The move, which is the first of its kind, is a key stepping stone toward the White House’s goal of deploying 30 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030.
The earmarked area encompasses around 399 square miles off California’s central coast. This area is projected to support 3 GW of offshore wind. Another potential location is off the northern coast of California. In total, the administration is targeting 4.6 GW of clean energy added to the grid through these projects, which is enough to power about 1.6 million homes.
