McKinley, Doyle Introduce Legislation to Advance Clean Energy

Washington, D.C.– Representatives David B. McKinley, P.E., (WV-1), and Mike Doyle (PA-14) introduced legislation to that promotes clean energy by advancing carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technology and increasing accountability at the Department of Energy.

“We need a national bipartisan energy plan that prioritizes research and efficiency so that America can reclaim the mantle of energy leadership on the world stage. Our legislation will facilitate the advancement of clean coal research and technology towards large scale demonstration and commercial use,” said Congressman McKinley.

“This bill will allow funds from the Department of Energy to be spent on the most promising technologies that produce clean energy while increasing accountability in the federal government. I’d like to thank Congressman Doyle for all of his hard work on this legislation and I look forward to seeing our bill advance through the House,” Congressman McKinley said.

“I have long been a supporter of CCUS and believe we need to continue developing technologies that combat climate change,” Congressman Doyle said. “CCUS technologies are on the front line of that battle, and we’re working to advance these areas of research and expedite their application to solving problems in the real world.

“Accordingly, I’m proud to reintroduce this commonsense, bipartisan legislation with my colleague Representative McKinley and hope we’re able to continue making progress in this area,” said Congressman Doyle.
