  • Supports the EPA adoption of the Federal Clean Air Act (FCAA), §179B Demonstration State Implementation Plan (SIP) Revision.
     

  • Supports Congressional efforts and proposals to incentivize research, demonstration and deployment of evolving advanced technologies that will promote innovation and assist with net emissions reductions.
     

  • Supports carbon-reduction proposals that are resource-neutral, economy wide, and give San Antonio the flexibility to invest in and transition to low-and non-emitting technologies in a manner consistent with our community’s priorities and the Climate Action & Adaptation Plan (CAAP).
     

  • Supports additional federal funding for programs such as the Low-Income Housing Assistance Program (LIHEAP) as it provides invaluable support and financial assistance to our San Antonio community members unable to pay their energy bills.
