Entrepreneur and Business Leader Joins Coalition

Jun 18, 2013 Issues: Climate Change, Energy, Environment, Water

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The House Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition (SEEC) welcomes to its ranks freshman Congressman John K. Delaney of Maryland’s 6th Congressional District.

“Increasing sustainable energy production isn’t just good for the environment, it’s good for the economy,” said Congressman Delaney. “Alternative energy growth is a major competitiveness issue. Just as the development of a global petroleum industry in the 20th century reshaped our global economy, the nations that provide new energy solutions to adapt to the reality of climate change will thrive in the 21st century. With a skilled workforce and a growing green energy sector along the I-270 corridor, Maryland and the Sixth District are well-positioned to be part of our national alternative energy sector. I am proud to join the Sustainable Energy & Environment Coalition and look forward to making America an alternative energy leader.”

“SEEC is pleased to welcome Congressman Delaney to the Coalition,” said SEEC Executive Director Kara Allen.  “The Congressman has an unrivaled business background, and we look forward to benefiting from his expertise as we continue advocating for clean energy technologies that grow American jobs while protecting our environment and climate.”   

With the addition of Congressman Delaney, SEEC now has 51 members.
