MEEA Joins Coalition Urging Congress to Support Energy Efficiency in 2012

Recently MEEA, along with a coalition of energy efficiency advocacy groups, signed on to two letters to Congress.

The first letter is addressed to the Chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development,  Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-New Jersey), and the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee, Rep. Peter Visclosky (D-Indiana),  urging the support for critical energy efficiency programs in the Fiscal Year 2013 Energy and Water Development Appropriations bill.

The second letter, addressing the Smart Energy Act of 2012 (H.R. 4017), was sent to the attention of House Energy and Commerce Committee members Reps. Charles Bass (R-New Hampshire) and Jim Matheson (D-Utah). Representatives Bass and Matheson are the co-authors of the legislation, which was introduced to the Committee in February and is currently working its way through the House.

Full copies of each letter, which include the list of co-signing organizations, can be found below.
