Support Federal Clean Energy Funding–Call your Legislators!

July 21 @ 8:00 am - September 15 @ 5:00 pm

Call Senator Feinstein’s office and tell her you support her work to protect funding for environmental programs! 

Senator Feinstein’s Washington DC office: (202) 224-3841   San Francisco office: (415) 393-0707

The Senate can be a bulwark against severe cuts to environmental programs proposed by the Trump administration and House Republicans. Our US Senator Dianne Feinstein is in a key role as the ranking Democratic member of the Senate Appropriations sub-committee on Energy and Water Development. While the House Appropriations Committee has passed an anti-environment appropriations bill , the Senate Appropriations  sub-committee has approved a budget which would increase funding for the Department of Energy overall by $630 million, including a record $330 million for the clean energy research grant program ARPA-E (Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy).

In contrast, the bill passed by the House Appropriations Committee would significantly cut funding for federal clean energy programs, cutting the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy by $980 million, and eliminating ARPA-E. The House bill would also cut funding for Energy Star (under EPA) by 40%.
