Long-time Conservationist, Environmental Advocate Joins Coalition

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

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The House Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition (SEEC) welcomes to its ranks freshman Congresswoman Ann McLane Kuster of New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District.  The Congresswoman and her family have a long history of supporting conservation and environmental stewardship in New Hampshire and her membership in SEEC will continue this legacy.

“We have a fundamental responsibility to confront the challenge of climate change head on—for the health of our environment, the strength of our economy, and the future of our children,” said Congresswoman Kuster. “I am excited to join the Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition and I look forward to working with SEEC members to take responsible, common sense steps that will reduce carbon emissions, make America more energy independent, and advance the development of renewable energy sources. Inaction on these fronts is simply not an option.”

“We are proud to welcome Congresswoman Annie Kuster to SEEC,” said SEEC Co-Chair Gerald Connolly (VA).  “She has quickly established herself as a clean energy and environmental champion, advocating for renewable and clean energy research and development as well as pipeline safety. We look forward to working with her and benefitting from her New Hampshire perspective.”

With the addition of Congresswoman Kuster, SEEC now has 52 members.
