Editor, The Commercial:

I am writing to salute Congressma­n Westerman for his leadership on the Energy Act of 2020. At a time of bitter partisansh­ip and political posturing, Congressma­n Westerman’s commitment to effective, commonsens­e climate solutions is a breath of fresh air.

The Energy Act of 2020 will help update and modernize our nation’s energy policies by investing in a range of clean energy technologi­es and initiative­s, from renewable energy and energy storage to carbon capture and storage to grid modernizat­ion, energy efficiency, and much more. Taken as a whole, these efforts will help make American energy cleaner, more competitiv­e, and more affordable.

Particular­ly as a young voter with decades of life ahead, I care deeply about the climate challenge and am grateful to Congressma­n Westerman for being a clean energy champion. I look forward to seeing him continue to lead on market-based climate solutions that safeguard our environmen­t while also strengthen­ing the economy.
