(WASHINGTON, DC - January 28, 2020) - Today, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone (D-NJ) and Subcommittee Chairs Bobby Rush (D-IL) and Paul Tonko (D-NY) unveiled a discussion draft of the Climate Leadership and Environmental Action for our Nation’s (CLEAN) Future Act.
The CLEAN Future Act discussion draft includes many EDF priorities—including transitioning the United States to 100% clean across the entire economy by 2050.
“EDF stands ready to work with Chairman Pallone and Representatives Rush and Tonko to develop durable climate legislation that puts our country on a path to 100% clean. This discussion draft of the CLEAN Future Act will provide the country with a transparent process and an open debate to engage with lawmakers and stakeholders on this critical issue. As the committee looks ahead, we encourage members to work together to identify the best policies needed to reduce climate pollution, promote clean energy, and strengthen our economy. We’re grateful to Chairman Pallone and Representatives Rush and Tonko for their leadership.”
- Elizabeth Gore, Senior Vice-President, Political Affairs
