WASHINGTON, DC – Energy and Commerce Committee Republican Leader Greg Walden (R-OR) responds to Energy and Commerce Democrats’ partisan climate change proposal, the Climate Leadership and Environmental Action for our Nation (CLEAN) Future Act:
“It’s disappointing that the Democrats have – yet again – opted for politics over progress. If Democrats were serious about getting something done on climate change, they would seek to make law instead of engaging in partisan messaging exercises. Their climate bill is being developed without a single Republican member being involved. Republicans could have stood next to Democrats at their press conference today, announcing serious solutions to reduce emissions. Instead, like the Speaker’s partisan approach to address drug pricing, it’s another missed opportunity,” Walden said.
