NRDC's David Hawkins is among the experts -- along with Energy Secretary Steven Chu, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson and Agriculture Department Secretary Tom Vilsack -- scheduled to testify on Tuesday, July 7 before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.
The committee, chaired by Barbara Boxer of California, will begin considering the issue of clean energy and climate legislation following last month's historic passage of the American Clean Energy and Security Act by the U.S. House of Representatives. NRDC supported the bill, which would cap global warming pollution and create clean energy jobs, and has urged the Senate to strengthen and pass similar legislation.
