Catch Steve Cappana, Technology Policy Officer from DOE mention multiple times that the guidance will come out before the end of the year during our IRA briefing to congressional staff. The threat of a government shutdown (at this point reopening the government), typically "horse trading" occurs at these critical points, you may want to reach out to the congressional members of your hub to use the hub location as an "ask" during negotiations.
Back to Steve, I had a good chat with him afterwards and invited him to our policy convention and told him about our campaign against the three pillars. We're hoping that he will be a speaker or attendee at the convention. I'll be following up with him. Please let me know if there's anything you want me to mention.
