Senator Schatz Praises President Obama's Commitment To Clean Energy

WASHINGTON – In response to tonight’s State of the Union address, Senator Brian Schatz praised President Obama’s clear plan to strengthen our middle-class and his commitment to a clean energy economy.

“President Obama laid out a clear plan to help middle-class families grow and prosper once again.  While we’ve made progress to get our economy back on track, the President’s commitment to a thriving clean energy economy ensures that we will get people back to work and continue to address climate change, the most urgent challenge of our generation.  I look forward to working with the President and the Hawai`i delegation to craft policies that create good-paying jobs across the country and to ensure that Hawai`i continues to establish itself as a leader in clean energy both nationally and internationally.”
