Gore Gets Behind ACES
Politico reports Al Gore has been putting his political muscle behind the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009:
Over the past few days, the former vice president and environmental activist has mobilized his green grass roots, marshaled his well-endowed lobbying organization and even personally called Democratic committee members in an effort to push the bill through the House Energy and Commerce Committee
and through Congress.
“I have enormous respect for Al Gore. When it comes to climate change, he’s the guru,” said Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.).
Rumor has it the bill could get a final vote before the full committee as soon as tonight. We’ll keep you updated!
