A Big Step Forward for Clean Energy In Congress’s First 100 Hours

For decades, wealthy oil companies have been enjoying government subsidies in the form of billions of dollars in tax cuts. But in a far-sighted move for the environment, the new 110th Congress is now drafting a bill (H.R. 6) that would not only repeal these unneeded tax breaks, but would in turn use that money to fund renewable energy research and promote energy efficiency and clean alternative fuels.

This commonsense approach would help realign our national energy priorities away from subsidizing environmentally-destructive companies already enjoying record profits, and toward real steps to combat global warming and build a better, cleaner energy future for America.

Congress is scheduled to vote January 18th, so your representative needs to hear from you now. Please help encourage our leaders to do the right thing: end tax subsidies to Big Oil and use the savings for new investments in clean renewable energy.
