Washington, D.C. — Daniel J. Weiss, CAP Senior Fellow and Director of Climate Strategy, issued the following statement today regarding the impact of President Barack Obama’s 2013 spending proposal on energy:

President Obama’s proposed budget invests in clean energy to power the engine of economic growth. It would invest in efficiency and renewable electricity technologies to create jobs and boost domestic manufacturing, and make it more efficient too. Cleaner energy will reduce pollution and protect public health. The budget would make taxes fairer by eliminating $40 billion in unnecessary breaks for big oil companies that made record profits in 2011.
