Washington, D.C. — In response to Chairman Pallone, Chairman Tonko, and Chairman Rush’s unveiling of the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s framework for the CLEAN Future Act, a plan to tackle the climate crisis and ensure the U.S. achieves a 100 percent clean economy by 2050, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released the following statement from Vice President of Government Affairs Sara Chieffo:

“Kudos to Chairman Pallone, Chairman Tonko, and Chairman Rush for putting climate action front and center at the start of the 2020 session. We are encouraged to see the pieces coming together for what will be the Energy and Commerce Committee’s first comprehensive climate bill in a decade — today’s announcement is further proof that elections have consequences. We look forward to working with Energy and Commerce and the pro-environment House majority on the next phase of this legislation and will be working to ensure that climate solutions address racial and social inequality and create good, family-sustaining jobs.”
