LCV Statement on Introduction of the Clean Energy and Transmission Acceleration (CETA) Act

Dec 13, 2023

Washington, D.C.— In response to today’s House introduction of the Clean Energy and Transmission Acceleration (CETA) Act,  the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released the following statement from Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld:

“We applaud Representatives Casten and Levin for leading with a positive vision for what our clean energy future can and should be,” said the League of Conservation Voters’ (LCV’s) Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “Transitioning to clean energy is critical to fighting the climate crisis and reducing pollution, and improving our grids and transmission systems will help accelerate that transition. Simultaneously, these efforts must advance environmental justice so that we do not perpetuate the same harms that the fossil fuel industry has unfairly imposed upon communities of color and communities of low wealth, and we appreciate that this bill moves the ball forward on all of these urgently needed solutions.”
