Clean Energy Businesses Eager to Work with Senator Murkowski on Energy 20/20 Vision

The Business Council for Sustainable Energy issued the following statement from Council President Lisa Jacobson after the release of Senator Lisa Murkowski's Energy 20/20 Vision.
"Clean energy businesses appreciate the effort and consideration that Senator Lisa Murkowski has put into her thoughtful Energy 20/20 Vision. We appreciate her commitment to addressing our nation's energy challenges and using her role as Ranking Member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee to begin a serious discussion about the appropriate path to an affordable, abundant, cleaner, diverse and secure energy portfolio. We particularly appreciate her openness to considering the environmental impact of our energy choices.
"Renewable energy, energy efficiency, and natural gas members of the Business Council for Sustainable Energy have enjoyed a solid working relationship with Senator Murkowski and appreciate her willingness to share her views with the Council and her openness to hearing the views of clean energy business interests. We look forward to closely reviewing the Energy 20/20 Vision over the coming weeks, and remain confident that we will be able to engage in a productive dialogue with Senator Murkowski, Chairman Wyden, and other members of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee."
