New LCV Ads Hold Members Accountable On Clean Energy

LCV is up with paid television and print ads in the districts of Reps. Denny Rehberg (R-MT), Roy Blunt (R-MO), Jason Altmire (D-PA) and Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ) that hold them accountable for voting against clean, American energy and thousands of jobs for their states. Check out the Rehberg spot:

All four representatives voted against the American Clean Energy and Security Act on June 26th. That's a shame, because each of their states stands to realize huge economic gains from a new clean energy economy, according to a study by the Center for American Progress and the Political Economy Research Institute.
  • Pennsylvania: 71,667
  • Missouri: 35,989
  • Arizona: 29,548
  • Montana: 6,303
The campaign has been well-received so far, receiving coverage in Politico as well as a variety of state blogs and local papers.

Americans should know when their elected representives are standing in the way of progress on job creation and comprehensive energy reform, and LCV is a very effective messenger when it comes to accountability. Let's hope that senators who are on the fence regarding a clean energy bill take note.
