E&C Announces Legislative Hearing on the CLEAN Future Act and Electric Transmission
Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) and Energy Subcommittee Chairman Bobby L. Rush (D-IL) announced today that the Subcommittee on Energy will hold a legislative hearing on Tuesday, June 29, at 10:30 a.m. (EDT) in the John D. Dingell Room, 2123 of the Rayburn House Office Building. It is entitled, “The CLEAN Future Act and Electric Transmission: Delivering Clean Power to the People.”
“Electric transmission is a critical part of our transition to a clean energy future. It ensures the reliable delivery of clean, low-cost energy to our homes and businesses while also helping us achieve our clean energy goals. Unfortunately, right now our energy infrastructure isn’t keeping pace with the changing times, impeding our ability to address the climate crisis and transmit clean energy to the communities that need it most,” said Pallone and Rush. “We look forward to discussing how the CLEAN Future Act and several other important bills would address this problem, help modernize and fortify our energy grid, and create new, good paying jobs right here at home.”
This will be a hybrid hearing that includes both in-person and remote member attendance 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.
The Committee strongly recommends that members of the media view the proceedings remotely. The Capitol and House Office Buildings currently have restricted access. Seating in the Committee room for credentialed media is very limited. Media must RSVP to their respective press gallery no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, June 28th.
