Introduced on Wednesday 6 by Reps. John Sullivan (R-OK), Dan Boren (D-OK), Kevin Brady (R-TX), and John Larson (D-CT), together with 76 co-sponsors, the bipartisan-supported NAT GAS Act is driven by the need for America to quickly reduce its dependence on foreign oil while simultaneously reducing greenhouse gas emissions and urban pollution. To achieve these goals, the bill’s objective is to accelerate the production and use of natural gas-fuelled vehicles.
“This backing by Congress is critical for our nation to succeed in its goal of creating a new alternate energy economy that’s not dependent on imported petroleum, and we applaud efforts to achieve this most important objective,” said Andrew Littlefair, Clean Energy President and CEO.
Littlefair noted that President Barack Obama encouraged this legislation in his energy policy speech at Georgetown University on March 30, 2011.
