Foster Statement on Energy Legislation

Today, Congressman Bill Foster released the following statement after the House of Representatives voted on H.R. 2454, the American Clean Energy and Security Act. Foster voted against the legislation, which passed the House by a vote of 219-212.

"As a scientist, I believe that climate change is real and that action is necessary. It is also crucial that we restructure our energy systems to increase efficiency and reduce our dependence on imported sources. However, I have always believed we have a responsibility to act in a way that comes with the lowest possible cost to the economy. A more thoughtful and measured bill could have mitigated significantly more greenhouse gas per dollar of expenditure. It is my hope that the Senate will make significant improvements to this legislation."
