The Energy Equity Alliance (EEA) joined a broad group of organizations representing the nation’s low income electricity consumers in commending Senators Lisa Murkowski and Maria Cantwell for their leadership in producing a bipartisan energy bill and urging the U.S. Senate to stand up for historically underrepresented consumers by opposing the King-Reid amendment.

“We are closely following the Senate floor debate on this bill, and we are concerned that an amendment offered by Senators Angus King and Harry Reid would unfairly harm those in historically low-income and minority communities,” stated the group which in addition to EEA includes National Black Caucus of State Legislators, World Conference of Mayors, U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Hispanics in Energy, The Latino Coalition, National Organization of Black Elected Legislative Women and National Policy Alliance.
