Shaheen-Portman Energy Efficiency Bill Hurdles Over Gridlock to Senate Floor

Release Date: Wednesday, May 8, 2013

Statement by the Alliance to Save Energy's Kateri Callahan

“Energy efficiency is on the move. With overwhelming across-the-aisle support, today’s committee approval sending Senators Shaheen and Portman’s energy efficiency bill to the floor proves once again that efficiency is a staple of bipartisanship even in times of gridlock.”

“We are very hopeful this swift progress can be carried onto the Senate floor and into American communities where it can create thousands of new jobs and save consumers billions a year. We call on all members of Congress to push efficiency policies like Shaheen-Portman and its House counterpart McKinley-Welch that can drive America’s economy forward and increase our global competitiveness.”
