Coalition Seeks Passage of Bipartisan Energy Legislation During Lame Duck

November 17, 2020 | News

The Carbon Capture Coalition sent a letter today to House and Senate leaders, urging resolution of any outstanding differences on widely supported bipartisan energy legislation, including the House passed Clean Energy Jobs and Innovation Act (H.R. 4447), the American Energy Innovation Act (S. 2656), and the Senate passed USE IT Act (S. 383). 

Taken together, the many important provisions contained in these three bills and supported by both parties would, if integrated into one package and enacted yet this year, provide the next critical step in building a broader federal policy portfolio to achieve economywide deployment of carbon capture. This would represent a signature accomplishment of the 116th Congress and build on the landmark bipartisan reform and expansion of 45Q achieved with the passage of the FUTURE Act in 2018.
