Sep 11, 2019 Opening Statement
I want to just make a few brief comments on H.R. 4230, the Clean Industrial Technology Act of 2019.
 
This bill directs DOE, the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and other relevant federal agencies and stakeholders to establish a broad, cross-cutting program to develop and commercialize technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions from non-power industrial sectors, like manufacturing and material production.
 
Sep 11, 2019 Opening Statement
Good morning. Thank you, Chairman Lamb, for the opportunity to speak on H.R. 4091, the ARPA-E Reauthorization Act of 2019, and H.R. 4230, the Clean Industrial Technology Act of 2019.
      
Sep 11, 2019 Opening Statement
We all know this Committee has one of the best track records in Congress for passing productive, bipartisan legislation. So I have to say, I am surprised and disappointed that we have been unable to reach a consensus on reauthorizing ARPA-E in a truly bipartisan way, especially given that Republicans have proposed a bill that not only includes similar program reforms but also authorizes a responsible spending increase.

Jul 24, 2019 Opening Statement

Thank you, Chairwoman Johnson, for holding this mark-up.

Today we will consider four pieces of legislation – three of which are bills that this Committee was unable to reach a bipartisan agreement on. I disappointed that we haven’t made more progress in reaching a bipartisan consensus, especially since this committee has one of the best track records in Congress for passing productive, bipartisan legislation.
