Miller Calls for Passage of Historic Climate Change Legislation
Rep. George Miller released the following statement calling on the House to approve the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009, one of President Obama's top domestic priorities.
"Passage will represent a monumental step forward in our effort to build a vibrant and green economy based on clean energy, less foreign oil, and a reduction in greenhouse gases," said Rep. George Miller (D-CA), chairman of the Education and Labor Committee and one of the co-authors of the energy bill. "Californians have led the nation in breaking our dependence on fossil fuels and have always known that the future belongs to clean energy technology jobs. It is long past time for us to stop sending our national treasure to pay for foreign oil. This bill gives us the opportunity to follow California's lead and move America in a new energy direction."
