(AmericanProsperity.com) – In January, the House Committee on Energy and Commerce proposed a “New” Green New Deal that environmentalists are not happy about — the CLEAN Future Act.
The CLEAN Future Act seeks to empower states to lead the way to a clean economy, provide investments to private-sector transition efforts, train the workforce, and integrate climate change into US national security planning.
If we’re going to combat the #ClimateCrisis, we must address all economic sectors that emit greenhouse gases. The transportation sector is the number one emitter, and my #CLEANFuture Act invests in building out zero emissions vehicle infrastructure. https://t.co/FyRQPXvLPA

In a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), a coalition of environmental groups said the bill is a failure of ambition and leadership, which jeopardizes her promise on climate change.
The House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis plans to release a report later this month. It’s expected to include a broad approach to combat greenhouse gas emissions, but environmental groups are concerned it won’t go far enough towards solving the problem.
