Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) and Energy Subcommittee Chairman Bobby L. Rush (D-IL) announced a legislative hearing for Wednesday, June 22, at 10:30 a.m. (EDT) in the John D. Dingell Room, 2123 of the Rayburn House Office Building. The hearing is entitled, “Legislative Hearing to Strengthen Energy Infrastructure, Efficiency, and Financing.”
“Our energy sector powers modern life as we know it, and it’s for that reason we must ensure that it is as efficient, resilient, and affordable as possible,” Pallone and Rush said. “We will consider legislation to improve energy efficiency and save Americans money on their electric bills, as well as strengthen our national security, supply chains, and federal financing programs. These are important bills for our most critical infrastructure, and we look forward to discussing them more next week.”
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.
