Portman Renews Push for Bipartisan Energy Efficiency LegislationPoliticalNews.me, December 22, 2013
Washington, D.C. –U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) spoke on the Senate floor to recommit his push for his bipartisan energy efficiency legislation, the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act (ESIC), which he introduced with U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH).
The legislation is designed to spur the use of energy efficiency technologies in the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors of our economy, while also fostering job creation. It uses a variety of low-cost tools to reduce barriers for private sector energy users and drive adoption of off-the-shelf efficiency technologies that will save businesses and consumers money, make America more energy independent, and reduce emissions.
