Dear Speaker Ryan and Leader Pelosi:

On behalf of Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES), I am writing in support of H.R. 589, the Department of Energy (DOE) Research and Innovation Act. CRES urges the House to pass a final version of this bipartisan, bicameral legislation this fall.

H.R. 589 is a comprehensive reauthorization of the DOE Office of Science, which manages and supports physical sciences research in the US. The legislation will support the work of national laboratories by strengthening public-private partnerships. It will improve coordination of federal research efforts, set priorities for basic research programs, including solar fuels, electricity storage, and in nuclear energy.

H.R. 589 is an important legislation for guiding the work of the Department of Energy. We encourage Congress to pass this legislation as soon as possible.
