REP LIEU RENEWABLE ENERGY AMENDMENT PASSES HOUSE

“Renewable energy is the future. We’ve seen climate change worsen natural disasters around the world and devastate communities,”Rep. Lieu said. “In 2017, after Hurricanes Maria and Irma ravaged Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands and left thousands without power for weeks, it was evident that we can’t wait any longer to invest in sustainable energy. By helping them shift towards renewable clean energy, we believe U.S. territories can be leaders in the United States’ renewable energy efforts and help fortify their energy grids in the event of another hurricane or natural disaster. Our amendment is another a step in the right direction towards taking decisive, necessary action on climate change.”
