  1st Session
H. RES. 565

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



                           September 19, 2019

  Mr. Curtis (for himself and Mr. Lowenthal) submitted the following 
 resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce



    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 
            (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.
