Today, the League of Conservation Voters responded to the announcement of an emerging compromise deal on the American Clean Energy and Security Act.  League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski issued the following statement:

“Chairmen Waxman and Markey have worked tirelessly to bring forward a crucial and historic bill that will move America towards a clean, safe energy future. Their bill will create new clean energy jobs, improve our national security, and help protect our planet.  We encourage the House Energy and Commerce Committee to quickly send this bill to the House floor, where we look forward to working with Members of both sides of the aisle to strengthen it, in particular by increasing energy efficiency and renewable energy provisions.”
