Energy Efficiency Bill Reintroduced Into Congress (VIDEO)

This article originally appeared on the website of the NRDC (video added).

Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Rob Portman (R-OH) this week reintroduced bipartisan legislation to speed the transition to a more energy efficient economy and save consumers money by promoting available efficiency technologies for homes, businesses and industrial facilities.

Franz Matzner, associate director of government affairs for the Natural Resources Defense Council, joined Sens. Shaheen and Portman at a Capitol Hill press conference announcing their Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act, and made these comments:

“The energy we don’t use is the cheapest and cleanest there is.  This bill takes important steps to seize some of the vast energy efficiency potential we have yet to tap as a nation so we use less and get more from our energy supply.

“Most important, Senators Shaheen and Portman’s leadership reminds us that clean energy is not a partisan issue. That’s a lesson we can all build on to do even more to give our children cleaner air and a stronger economy.”

The senators’ press release on the bill is available here: http://www.shaheen.senate.gov/news/press/release/?id=57f82292-c91d-41a1-b6a5-74fa99f6349e
