                               RESOLUTION


 
    Supporting the designation of the week of September 23 through 
         September 27, 2019, as ``National Clean Energy Week''.

Whereas, across the United States, clean and readily abundant forms of energy 
        are powering more homes and businesses than ever before;
Whereas clean energy generation is readily available from zero- and low-
        emissions sources;
Whereas the clean energy sector is a growing part of the economy and has been a 
        key driver of economic growth in the United States in recent years;
Whereas technological innovation can further reduce costs and increase 
        deployment of clean energy sources;
Whereas the ``2019 U.S. Energy and Employment Report'' found that--

    (1) energy and energy efficiency sectors employ approximately 6,700,000 
people; and

    (2) the number of jobs in those sectors grew by more than 2 percent 
from 2017 to 2018;

Whereas the scaling of clean energy is essential to reducing harmful pollution;
Whereas clean energy jobs are inherently local, contribute to the growth of 
        local economies, and cannot be outsourced due to the on-site nature of 
        construction, installation, and maintenance; and
Whereas innovative clean energy solutions and clean energy jobs are part of the 
        energy future of the United States: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives--
            (1) supports the designation of ``National Clean Energy 
        Week'';
            (2) encourages individuals and organizations across the 
        United States to support commonsense solutions that address the 
        economic, environmental, and energy needs of the United States 
        in the 21st century;
            (3) encourages the Federal Government, States, 
        municipalities, and individuals to invest in clean, low-
        emitting energy technologies; and
            (4) recognizes the role of entrepreneurs and small 
        businesses in ensuring the energy leadership of the United 
        States in the global marketplace and supporting low-cost, 
        clean, and reliable energy in the United States.
                                 <all>
