AWEA Letter Opposes Hoeven-Manchin Amendment

USA July 29 2013 ~

AWEA Letter Opposes Hoeven-Manchin Amendment
The American Wind Energy Association expressed opposition to an amendment to S. 761, the
Energy Savings an Industrial Competitiveness Act, expected to be introduced by Senators John
Hoeven (R-ND) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) in a July 25 letter. The amendment would repeal a
requirement set up by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 for all federal buildings to
abandon fossil-fuel generated energy by 2030. The letter also expressed support for an anticipated
amendment from Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) which would keep this requirement in place.
