Statement by Lowell Ungar, ACEEE's senior policy advisor
"If there is anything on which Congress should be able to agree, it is the Portman-Shaheen bill. Senators Rob Portman and Jeanne Shaheen have led the fight for bipartisan, sensible energy efficiency legislation since 2011. Their bill, the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act, would help consumers, workers, businesses, states, the economy, and the environment. It would save energy in homes, commercial and federal buildings, and manufacturing plants."
