Join LCV for our annual Capital Dinner on March 20th in Washington, DC Register Now
Washington, D.C. — In response to Chairmen Pallone, Tonko, and Rush’s release of draft text of the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s CLEAN Future Act, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released the following statement from Vice President of Government Affairs Sara Chieffo:
“It’s encouraging to see Chairmen Pallone, Tonko, and Rush take the next step towards crafting the Energy and Commerce Committee’s first comprehensive climate bill in a decade. We look forward to rolling up our sleeves, digging in on the text, and getting to work to ensure that the legislation delivers on our climate goals, addresses racial and social inequality, and creates good, family-sustaining jobs.
“In stark contrast to the most anti-environment president in history and his allies in charge of the Senate who continue to put the health and well-being of our children and families at risk by siding with polluters, we’re encouraged to see momentum building throughout the U.S. House of Representatives for the climate solutions we so desperately need.”
