Washington, DC—Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid released the following statement following his meeting today with Senators working on clean energy legislation:
“Today’s meeting offered us another opportunity to discuss the best way to move forward to bring to the floor strong, bipartisan climate protection legislation that can attract more than 60 votes.
“We are continuing to work to bring a bill to the Senate floor as soon as possible. The proposals we are discussing will create millions of jobs, lower energy bills and reduce dependence on foreign oil imports. They will also invest significantly in 21st century clean energy technologies to make America more competitive. I am optimistic about our progress and look forward to more productive meetings to move this effort forward in the near future.”
