E&C Announces Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee Legislative Hearing on the CLEAN Future Act
Energy and Commerce Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) and Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee Chairman Paul Tonko (D-NY) announced today that the Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee will hold a fully remote legislative hearing on Thursday, March 18, at 11 a.m. (EDT) on the Climate Leadership and Environmental Action for our Nation’s (CLEAN) Future Act, which was introduced last week. The hearing is entitled, “The CLEAN Future Act: Industrial Climate Policies to Create Jobs and Support Working Communities.”
“Addressing the industrial sector’s climate impacts is a challenge but it also presents an opportunity to rebuild our economy from the devastation of this pandemic. We can revitalize the communities tied to heavy industry and energy production, and ensure that we bring along every worker as we transition to a clean economy,” Pallone and Tonko said. “We look forward to discussing how the Buy Clean Program, the Clean Energy and Sustainability Accelerator, and the Community Transition provisions in the CLEAN Future Act will help transform the U.S. industrial sector and put us on track to achieve our climate goals.”
This hearing will be conducted remotely via Cisco Webex video conferencing. Members of the public may view the hearing via live webcast accessible on the Energy and Commerce Committee’s website. Please note the webcast will not be available until the hearing begins.
