Over 170 U.S. Companies Call on Senators To Get Energy and Climate Legislation 'Back on Track'

E-mail Print PDF

Over 170 businesses from around the country sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Reid and his Senate colleagues today calling on the Senate to continue working to enact comprehensive climate and energy legislation this year. The letter was brought together by the We Can Lead coalition, a project of the Clean Economy Network (CEN) and Ceres.

Signatories to the letter include Exelon, Nike, Virgin America, PG&E and eBay, along with representatives from the new energy economy. The letter comes just days after a temporary delay of the introduction of the legislative language by Senators Kerry, Graham, and Lieberman. Business leaders are urging all Senators to get comprehensive energy and climate legislation "back on track" in order to spur a new energy economy, boost energy independence and decrease carbon emissions.

"Today, the United States is falling behind in the global race to lead the next global industrial revolution. US businesses need strong policies and clear market signals to deploy capital, harness innovative technologies, and compete in the global marketplace," the letter states. "Every day the Senate fails to pass comprehensive climate and energy legislation is a day our economy falls another step behind and delays our ability to create millions of new American jobs. America's energy future is not a partisan issue. Now is the time to bring the parties together and finish what we started."

The letter was signed by 175 businesses from some of the nation's largest electric power, manufacturing, clean tech, technology and consumer facing companies. To view the full text and the broad list of business support for action, please go to: www.wecanlead.org/actnow
