CCL Gives Input To Energy & Commerce

Average Rating:
Recently, the House Energy and Commerce Committee requested CCL’s view on certain climate policy questions. Specifically, the committee wanted to know what considerations should inform a comprehensive climate policy, how such a policy might be designed, any advice on economic sectors that may be particularly difficult to decarbonize, and more.We’re very encouraged that the Energy and Commerce Committee requested this input from CCL. The Energy and Commerce Committee is one of the committees of jurisdiction for the Energy Innovation Act, and 5 cosponsors sit on this committee. Their request for input from us is yet another example of CCL’s growing influence on the Hill, thanks to our volunteers’ years of respectful, informed engagement with lawmakers.

Jerry Hinkle and Rick Knight, CCL’s two Research Coordinators, worked with our D.C. team to prepare answers for the Energy and Commerce Committee. We submitted our input last week, and now you can read the document for yourself, attached to this post below.

Fantastic support for legislative officials to consider pricing GHG - in some cases, consider change of position.  References to expert economic modeling managed by RFF, modeling of income impacts of four of the 8 policies before Congress, and concise, clear graphs, were highlights!  Hmmm, I downloaded "final" and wonder how many drafts Rick Knight and Jerry Hinkle generated!  Thank you!
