Our goal is to elect and re-elect legislators developing solutions to global warming problems. We need your help and they deserve your support.
U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (NH) is running for re-election and is being challenged by former U.S. Senator Scott Brown (MA). Senator Shaheen has reintroduced a wide-ranging energy bill that would promote energy efficiency buildings and appliances.
“We know energy efficiency is the cheapest fastest way to deal with our energy needs,” said Shaheen in a phone interview, “so I’m really hopeful that we have some additional sponsors on the bill that we’re able this time to get it through the senate and have a good reception in the house.”
With the tweaks – which also include provisions allowing third parties to certify energy star appliances, and one that asks HUD to perform energy retrofits on low-income housing – the senator says the bill now has the 60 votes it needs to overcome a filibuster.
Your contribution to Global Warming Solutions IE-PAC will go to positive radio advertising on Jeanne Shaheen championing this global warming solution - The Shaheen and Portman Energy Efficiency Bill. Thank you for donating funds to reduce carbon pollution and to slow climate change.
