On behalf of our millions of members, we write to express our opposition to the FY2014 Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies Appropriations bill. Instead of providing funding to maintain America’s leadership in clean energy, this year’s bill cuts renewable energy funding in half, while maintaining high levels of funding for the mature fossil and nuclear energy sectors. Furthermore, this bill contains policy riders that seek to undermine American’s supply of clean water through a legislative backdoor. Instead of choosing the dirty energy of the past, Congress should be investing in the benefits provided by clean energy technologies. We urge you to either reverse the clean energy funding cuts and remove the policy riders on water policy, or to vote against this bill.
