Letters & Testimony

Testimony
Dear Chairman Pallone, Ranking Member Walden, Chairman Tonko, and Ranking Member Shimkus:
 
We welcome this opportunity to submit this correspondence for the record of the hearing entitled, “We’ll Always Have Paris: Filling the Leadership Void Caused by Federal Inaction on Climate Change.”
 
The Chamber takes a great deal of interest in the work of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and is an official UNFCCC observer. We make several points.
 
Letters
TO THE MEMBERS OF THE UNITED STATES SENATE:
 
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports S. 383, the bipartisan “Utilizing Significant Emissions with Innovative Technologies (USE IT) Act.” Cosponsorship of this bill will be included in the “leadership” component of the Chamber’s “How They Voted Scorecard.”
 
Letters
Earlier this year, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced a revision to our legislative scorecard. Beginning with this Congress, lawmakers will receive credit for cosponsoring Chamber-endorsed bills or refraining from cosponsoring bills the Chamber endorses against.
 
Our intent is to use this process to build momentum for the pro-business position on individual bills.
 
Testimony

Amici curiae trade associations and their thousands of members (collectively, “Amici”) representing American energy production and transportation, electric power generation, manufacturing, businesses, and workers, support rehearing en banc. As the rehearing petitions and other amicus explain, the panel wrongly vacated decisions of the United States Forest Service (“USFS”) related to critical energy pipeline infrastructure.
