“I rise today to support Clean Energy Week, an opportunity to celebrate bipartisan support for the wide variety of clean energy sources strengthening America’s national security while also preserving our environment for future generations. We can work across the aisle to be better caretakers of our planet, and I plan to continue the pursuit of these positive bipartisan policies while in Congress.”

The Congressman’s full remarks, as prepared for delivery, are below:

Mr. Speaker,

I rise today to support Clean Energy Week, an opportunity to celebrate bipartisan support for the wide variety of clean energy sources strengthening America’s national security while also preserving our environment for future generations.

Environmental stewardship doesn’t have to mean making economic sacrifices. Clean energy solutions and jobs are the future of the United States, with clean energy powering more homes and businesses than ever before.

The environment is, and should be, a bipartisan issue.

That is why this week I am proud to lead, with my friend Congressman Lowenthal of California, a resolution in support of congressionally supporting the designation of Clean Energy Week.

I am proud that our effort has already received the support of dozens of our colleagues in Congress in a few short days.

This goes to show that we can work across the aisle to be better caretakers of our planet, and I plan to continue the pursuit of these positive bipartisan policies while in Congress.

I yield the balance of my time.
