Coalition Calls for Passage of Clean Energy Bill

June 24, 2010

With the need to take this country in a new direction, the President is working with Congress to pass energy and climate legislation to protect our nation from the serious economic and strategic risks associated with our reliance on foreign oil. The push to move forward is a direct response to the BP oil spill that is costing the country over $20 billion to solve and clean up. The energy bill, if passed, can create jobs, and severely cut down on the carbon pollution that contributes to the destabilizing effects of climate change.
