WASHINGTON, DC - House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement on the Kerry-Boxer Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act, introduced in the Senate today:
 
“Building a new, clean energy economy that creates jobs and increases American competitiveness and energy independence is a key priority for this Congress. The American Clean Energy and Security Act that passed the House in June lays the groundwork to achieve these goals through policies that invest in clean energy technologies and infrastructure, and curb the carbon pollution that threatens our economy, security and health. I look forward to the Senate’s consideration of the Kerry-Boxer proposal as another step forward in investing in our clean energy future and asserting our leadership in new energy technologies.”
