Washington, DC – Today the House Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Caucus announced that Congressman Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) and Congressman Dave Reichert (R-WA) will serve as Caucus Co-Chairs in the 113th Congress.

“Dave Reichert has been a real leader on the issue of renewable energy and energy efficiency, working to protect natural resources in his home state of Washington and across the country and providing tax incentives for renewable energy,” said Congressman Van Hollen. “We must continue to build America’s clean energy future, and I know Dave will be a strong partner in that effort.”

“It is an honor to serve alongside Chris Van Hollen as Co-Chair of this bipartisan forum on renewable energy and energy efficiency. Chris understands, as do I, that moving closer to energy independence requires that we utilize the multiple resources available to us. By making the most of renewable sources and new technologies, in addition to the natural resources America is blessed with, we will be able to provide for a more stable, secure America.”
