Three new members of Congress have signed on to cosponsor the Energy Innovation Act: Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ), and Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD).

Rep. Bass is a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, one of the three committees the bill has been referred to. She’s not alone in her support—23% of Foreign Affairs Committee members are also cosponsors. Support is building in the other committees with jurisdiction over the bill, too: 9% of Energy and Commerce members and 10% of Ways and Means members are cosponsors.

Speaking of Ways & Means, here is the link for CCL's submitted testimony to the House Committee this past month that cosponsor Rep. Judy Chu read from on the committee floor. 

Rep. Bass also serves as the Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus. So far, 24% of the Congressional Black Caucus are also cosponsors of the Energy Innovation Act.

Overall, the Energy Innovation Act has support from a total of 55 members. The Democrats in that group represent 22% of all Democrats in the House (currently the majority party).

Keep up with the bill’s progress on this page of CCL Community. Thanks for all you’re doing to move this important legislation forward!

Flannery, love these updates! Are they viewable by the general public, or just CCL Community Members? I might want to send links to our Grasstops prospects.
