Release Date: Thursday, April 18, 2013

“At the Alliance, we are so excited that Senators Shaheen and Portman have once again reached across that big political divide, and are putting the American people and our economy and our energy security ahead of politics. 

This country needs to become more energy productive; and the way to do that is through forward-leading policies to drive energy efficiency. 

They passed pieces of it in the last Congress, but the best is yet to come; and Senators Shaheen and Portman have put a bill together that will save Americans money, that will make our industry more efficient and more productive, that will create jobs, and that is going to improve our environment. 

At the Alliance to Save Energy, we have a goal of doubling U.S. energy productivity between now and 2030; and the Shaheen-Portman Bill is a great start toward allowing us to achieve that very important goal.  Americans are just tired of the gridlock in Congress.

The Shaheen-Portman Bill, if acted on now, is the way around, through, and over that gridlock to strong national energy policy.”
