Washington, D.C.- In response to the House Energy and Commerce Committee vote to advance the Climate Action Now Act, the League of Conservation Voters released the following statement from SVP of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld:


“It’s a new day in the U.S. House! We commend Energy & Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee Chairman Paul Tonko, and all of the Democrats on the Committee for passing H.R. 9, the Climate Action Now Act. After eight years of climate change deniers running the show, we’re thrilled that positive climate legislation is advancing through the U.S. House of Representatives. This bill is an important first step to help prevent worsening climate impacts, build our clean energy economy and renew American leadership in combating the climate crisis.”
