The following is a statement from Linda Church Ciocci, Executive Director of the National Hydropower Association, on today's approval of H.R. 267, the Hydropower Regulatory Efficiency Act of 2013, by the House Energy and Commerce Committee:
“The National Hydropower Association is very pleased with the speed at which the Energy and Commerce Committee approved the Hydropower Regulatory Efficiency Act. It’s a common sense, bipartisan piece of legislation that will allow hydropower to contribute more to our nation’s energy needs and economic growth.
“The bill’s chief sponsors Reps. Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Diana DeGette, along with their original co-sponsors, have done a wonderful job championing it so early in the new Congress. NHA would also like to extend its thanks to Chairman Fred Upton and Ranking Member Henry Waxman for making this a priority for the committee.
“We urge the full House to swiftly pass H.R. 267, as it did unanimously last July.”
