Energy independence and environmental sustainability go hand in hand. Nita strongly supports clean energy investments that can spur American industry, address global climate change and reduce our reliance on imported oil.
Sustainable Clean Energy: Nita backed the American Clean Energy and Security Act that would help break our dependence on foreign oil by spurring investment in clean energy technology and achieving a broad-based shift to sustainable energy use.
Better Fuel Efficiency Standards: Nita knows that higher fuel-efficiency standards can reduce overall gas consumption, help consumers, and boost the competitiveness of American industry.
Conserving Natural Resources: Natural assets, such as the Hudson River, are vital to our quality of life and local economy. That’s why Nita has fought successfully to improve water quality, protect our watersheds and ensure that our most precious resources are conserved for future generations.
