“The House of Representative took an important step toward renewing U.S. climate leadership today with the introduction of H.R. 9, the Climate Action Now Act. The bill would make sure we honor our commitment to reduce our climate pollution.

“Climate change is a clear and present danger to all of us. We must do everything in our power to address the threat. This new bill allows us to reaffirm America’s global leadership on the issue and our economic leadership as we move into the clean energy future. We welcome this long-awaited step in the right direction.”

- Elizabeth Gore, EDF Senior Vice President, Political Affairs
