WASHINGTON, DC – August 3, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Congresswoman Doris Matsui (CA-06), Co-Chair of the Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition (SEEC), released the following statement as the Environmental Protection Agency finalized its Clean Power Plan today:
“I applaud the release of President Obama’s Clean Power Plan. California has already taken aggressive action to reduce emissions and the EPA’s plan will put our country at the forefront of global efforts to combat climate change,” said Congresswoman Matsui. “I am also pleased that the plan incentivizes investment in clean energy. Sacramento continues to lead the nation in clean energy innovation and energy efficiency.”
“Californians have seen firsthand the severe impact of climate change. As cycles of extended drought and extreme weather events become more frequent, we must act to protect the health of our communities and economy.”
Congresswoman Matsui is the sponsor of the Clean Energy Technology Manufacturing and Export Assistance Act of 2015, which would create a $15 million fund to support the development, implementation, and sustainability of a National Clean Energy Technology Export Strategy as well as provide U.S. clean technology firms with export assistance in finding and navigating foreign markets.
