Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Congressman Jim Costa (D-Fresno) voted no today on HR 2454, the American Clean Energy and Security Act.  Unfortunately, it passed by a slim vote of 219 to 212.  Following this vote, Costa released the following statement.

I had hoped to vote for the American Clean Energy and Security Act.  However, the changes that were made to the bill were not enough to alleviate my concerns.  The bill still needs more work. Before I vote for any final passage of the legislation, the Senate and conference committee will have to make additional and significant changes that will benefit our Valley.”
