In a recent edition of Clean Energy Insider, CRES President Heather Reams highlighted some exciting updates from Capitol Hill that are helping the United States continue its leadership to reduce global emissions.
On the House side, the Conservative Climate Caucus welcomed five new vice chairs- Reps. Tim Walberg (R-Mich.), Buddy Carter (R-Ga.), Greg Murphy (R-N.C.), Lori Chavez-DeRemer (R-Ore.) and Jen Kiggans (R-Va.). These vice chairs will work alongside Caucus leadership, Chair John Curtis (R-Utah) and Vice Chair Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-Iowa), to educate lawmakers and shepherd policies that reduce emissions and strengthen our grid’s reliability and affordability.
The U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works advanced the Providing Reliable, Objective, Verifiable Emissions Intensity and Transparency (PROVE IT) Act – a CRES-endorsed proposal that will prove what we already know to be true: American-produced goods result in lower emissions than our economic competitors. I sent a letter to Senate EPW Chairman Tom Carper (D-Del.) and Ranking Member Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.V.) urging support of the legislation.
