Clean Energy Advocates Congressional Support for Natural Gas Legislation
Clean Energy Fuels applauded the introduction of the National Gas Parity Act of 2018 (H.R. 5959) in the U.S. House of Representatives by Reps. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) and John Larson (D-CT). The legislation provides for a number of incentives and changes to existing laws to encourage the sale, purchase, and use of natural gas as a transportation fuel.
“There has never been a better time for Congress to support the adoption of natural gas vehicles (NVGs) as a proven transportation model, one that has already been successfully adopted by municipalities across the U.S.,” said Andrew J. Littlefair, president and CEO of Clean Energy Fuels. “Whether transferring goods, transporting passengers, picking up trash, or shuttling airport passengers, natural gas vehicles are helping to move America with a cleaner fuel. It’s important that Congress provide incentives for the utilization of domestically-available energy sources—including the use of natural gas in Federal government fleets—and provide funding for natural gas research to accelerate the advancement of natural gas engines and vehicles.”
