Representative Berkley Standing Up for Nevadans’ Health Within Federal Budget Debate

As negotiations around funding for the federal government continue into the weekend in Washington, D.C., Representative Berkley is taking actions to ensure that the final bill does not include attacks on Nevadans’ public health and our environment.  Most notably, Representative Berkley signed onto a letter this week to House Speaker John Boehner, urging him to not allow for any attacks on the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to clean up dangerous pollution.  The letter was written in response to the many attacks on EPA’s ability to protect public health and the environment that were in the original House-passed funding bill (H.R. 1, passed on February 19, details below), and the fear that similar attacks could be included in the funding bill being negotiated this weekend.

Smart, Clean and Ready to Go: How Solar Hot Water Can Reduce Pollution and Dependence on Fossil Fuels

Solar water heating has the potential to reduce America’s dependence on fossil fuels and curb pollution that causes global warming and respiratory problems. By taking advantage of America’s full potential to produce hot water for homes and businesses from solar energy, the nation could reduce natural gas consumption by 2.5 percent and electricity use by nearly one percent, while avoiding 52 million metric tons of carbon dioxide pollution per year—equivalent to emissions from 13 coal-fired power plants or 9.9 million cars
