Representative Mark Green (TN-7) called the IRA “boneheaded” and “out of touch.” Yet, he seemed to have no problem welcoming a $10 million investment and 83 new jobs from Daejin Advanced Materials, a company specializing in manufacturing polymers for EV batteries, to Cumberland City, TN. Green said he is “honored” to welcome the company to Tennessee’s Seventh District, and we are honored to see this staunch Republican embracing the benefits of the IRA.
