Ros-Lehtinen Comments On The Majority's Compromise On The Energy & Climate Bill
Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a senior member of the Florida Congressional Delegation, issued the following statement on the Energy and Climate Bill compromise announced by the Majority in the House.
"Global warming is real and man-made but we need to develop smart strategies to invest in research and development for green technology. We have to be certain that the costs, in terms of job losses and the sagging economy, get us to the desired outcome for the environment.
I'm very mindful of the constituents I represent who struggle everyday on their fixed incomes to meet their mounting bills. My hope is that we can find a consensus and strike the right balance between safeguarding the environment and safeguarding the finances of America's working families."
