BCSE Testified at Congressional Hearing On June 19

 

On Thursday, June 19, the Council testified in front of the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Energy and Air Quality at a hearing focused on various climate change proposals being considered by Congress.  Lisa Jacobson, Executive Director, spoke on behalf of the Council, “By implementing policies that drive clean energy investments right away, the United States can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and be better able to achieve long-term climate change mitigation goals at affordable costs to consumers and businesses.”

 

“Moreover,” Jacobson said, “moving forward with a strong clean energy deployment strategy can be done now, while Congress deliberates the design of a federal climate change program.  This will provide a down payment on greenhouse gas reduction and start the nation down a clean energy path.”  A complete copy of the BCSE testimony will be made available shortly.
