For the bill

Sparkz CEO Sanjiv Malhotra (right) announces plans in March at the Robert C. Byrd Institute at Marshall University for his energy startup to open a battery factory in West Virginia employing 350 people and invest in workforce training for dislocated mine workers. Sparkz has endorsed the Inflation Reduction Act championed by Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. (left), saying the bill would move climate technology forward and create jobs for West Virginians.
