Gov. Jay Inslee visited the nation’s capitol with fellow governors for a meeting of the National Governors Association (NGA). The group was received by President Joe Biden in the White House Friday morning

“Great meeting talking about the fact he’s helped create 12 million jobs already, another 9 million jobs coming in clean energy,” said Inslee on Instagram. “Good things are happening, both federally and in our state, creating jobs.”

During its weekend meetings, NGA membership discussed state responses to contemporary issues like youth mental health, labor market challenges, grid resiliency, clean energy, and disaster preparedness, and more.

On Friday, the governor met with President Joe Biden's senior advisor on clean energy John Podesta. Podesta is responsible to administer $370 billion in clean energy investments under the Inflation Reduction Act. The law will help Americans drive cleaner cars and efficiently warm and cool their homes while reducing greenhouse gas emissions nationwide.

On Saturday, Inslee met with other governors to discuss energy transmission and workforce shortages. Executives from Microsoft, Cognizant, and AECOM shared their thoughts on the future of work and addressing workforce shortages.
