Gov. Schwarzenegger Issues Statement on House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Passage of American Clean Energy and Security Act


May 22, 2009 – (RealEstateRama) — Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger issued the following statement on the passage of the Waxman-Markey American Clean Energy and Security Act out of the House Energy and Commerce Committee:

“I applaud today’s bipartisan vote in Congress to move forward the Waxman-Markey American Clean Energy and Security Act. While the Act still has a long road ahead of it and I will work with the California delegation to improve it further, this Act represents the kind of comprehensive federal strategy to use energy more efficiently, produce more clean energy here at home, and courageously address the urgent threat of global warming that leading states such as California have urged for years. Just today, a total of 30 governors acting as the Governors’ Energy and Climate Coalition, the largest, most diverse group ever assembled, called on Congress to pass this kind of legislation. I congratulate the House members of both political parties that today voted to move America toward a more energy secure and sustainable future.”


The world knows Arnold Schwarzenegger as a famous bodybuilder and a Hollywood action hero, but he is also a successful businessman, generous philanthropist and California's 38th Governor.

Governor Schwarzenegger's most notable accomplishments in his first five years in office include the nation-leading Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 - a bipartisan agreement to combat global warming by reducing California's greenhouse gas emissions - and overhauling the state's workers' compensation system - cutting costs by more than 35 percent.
