Senator Boxer:  Creating a Clean Energy Economy   

Thursday, July 9, 2009  


Dear Friend:

The Senate’s Committee on Environment and Public Works, which I chair, recently held a hearing to kick off our legislative effort to create clean energy jobs, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and reduce air pollution and global warming.  I wanted to share with you my opening statement, available at this link:

and encourage you to read the hearing record, available at the committee’s website, featuring statements from the Secretaries of Energy, Interior and Agriculture as well as the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.

Sincerely,

Barbara Boxer, US Senator, California
