Washington D.C. – On the heels of the historic passage of the American Clean Energy and Security Act in the U.S. House with bipartisan support, Americans United for Change unveiled a new television ad today hailing Congressman Paul Hodes for meeting President Obama’s challenge to begin establishing America as a world leader in clean energy while paving the way for creating millions of new jobs (including 8,000 jobs in New Hampshire), reducing the nation’s dependence on foreign oil, and curbing pollution that causes global warming.

Tom McMahon, Acting Executive Director, Americans United for Change: “Thanks to Congressman Hodes’s leadership in Congress, America has taken a giant leap towards becoming the global standard for clean energy while creating thousands of jobs in New Hampshire in the process. This historic legislation will help build a solid foundation for long-term economic prosperity by meeting President Obama’s challenge to reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign oil and curbing pollution that causes global warming. We stand with Congressman Hodes as he continues to stand up to the forces of ‘status quo’and helps move this historic clean energy jobs bill to the President’s desk as quickly as possible.”
