Washington, D.C. – The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity applauds Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) for championing his “U.S.-China Greenhouse Gas Agreement Amendment” to S.1 and encourages its swift passage.

 

“President Obama’s radical overseas environmental agenda will force America to partake in agreements that jeopardize our economic competitiveness and national security. Bypassing Congress at every chance, the president has already put the United States on the losing end of a so-called climate ‘deal’ with China and has vowed to champion a binding international climate agreement at the Paris Climate Talks later this year,” said Mike Duncan, president and CEO of ACCCE. “Senator Blunt’s amendment is an important step in putting an end to the Obama Administration’s unchecked unilateralism.”

 

Much like Byrd-Hagel, Senator Blunt’s amendment is designed to protect American jobs and the economy and would require Senate approval of the U.S.-China agreement as well as any pacts made in Paris later this year.

 

Yesterday, ACCCE lashed out at Senate Democrats for playing politics with their contentious climate change amendment. Rather than seek across-the-aisle cooperation on a measure that already enjoys bipartisan support, Democratic Senators spearheading the amendment have turned their backs on compromise in favor of protecting their overzealous political agendas.

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

Washington, D.C. – As the Senate gears up to pass legislation authorizing the Keystone XL pipeline, Senator Brian Schatz (D-HI) and his Democratic colleagues have chosen to play political games that distract from the promising bipartisan progress enjoyed by the bill, which promises major economic benefits and widespread job creation.
