Members of the 11 1st Congress


Dear President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, Representative Boehner, Leader Reid, Senator McConnell, and
all members of the 111th Congress,


As leaders in state legislatures across the country, we call on you to pass comprehensive clean
energy jobs and climate change legislation.

State legislators have been leading clean energy efforts for decades. As the laboratories of
democracy, states have proven that clean energy jobs and climate legislation results in job growth, in
greater security, and in spurring American leadership and innovation.

CLEAN ENERGY JOBS
29 states have passed Renewable Portfolio Standards and four more have set renewable energy
goals, requiring that a significant percentage of that states' electricity be generated from non-fossil
fuels. These renewable electricity requirements have led to significant job growth in the clean-energy
sector.

Nearly every state In the nation has made energy-efficiency a priority. These energy efficiency
investments have helped major industries stay competitive, and have helped schools, cities, counties,
and other local governments save hundreds of millions of dollars in energy costs.

In states where renewable power and energy efficiency is a policy priority, the clean energy
economy has outpaced the rest of the economy, in some cases nearly 10 to 1. While other sectors
of the economy have been losing jobs, the clean energy economy is a bright spot for job creation.

State and local governments are seeing the benefit of clean energy jobs legislation, but we also
face steep costs due to the risks associated with climate change. The costs and instabilities
involve massive flooding and major hurricane damage, sustained droughts and widespread

                                                                                               Page 1 of 12
agricultural pests and diseases, and major biological disruptions affecting our water and food supply,
health care, and public safety. These catastrophic costs affect insurance payouts and higher premiums
for private- and public-sector policyholders. They also involve unprecedented economic losses to
industry and to federal, state and local governments.

NATIONAL SECURITY
America's dependence on foreign energy makes our nation vulnerable, in terms of economics
and national security.

According to the Energy Information Agency, our federal energy trade deficit is approximately
$1 billion a day, or more than $10,000 a second. To fuel our economy, we depend on unstable,
unfriendly nations who don't share American values. As a result, in the words of former CIA Director
James Woolsey and Senator John McCain, we are funding both sides of the war on terror.

Our nation's most respected military leaders recognize that climate change is a threat multiplier for
instability in the most volatile regions of the world. The climate change threat presents significant
national security challenges for the United States - challenges that should be addressed today,
because they will almost certainly get worse if we delay.

AMERICAN LEADERSHIP AND INNOVATION
The global economy is increasingly a clean energy economy. We must ensure that we do not
replace our reliance on Middle Eastern oil with a reliance on Chinese solar panels and South American
biofuels. As a nation, we have always relied on the ingenuity of the American people to solve our
problems, and a federal clean energy jobs and climate bill will give American innovation the chance to
shine again.

Through its centrally-controlled economy, China has quickly leaped ahead on renewable energy
development, including the world's largest solar power plant. India is moving forward with its
ambitious National Action Plan on Climate Change. The United States of America cannot allow
nearly every other nation to beat us to the clean energy economy.

Today, American industry faces a confusing patchwork of state incentives, regulation and energy and
emission targets that hinders innovation. Only Congress can provide a predictable, national
framework that will spur innovation and discovery in the clean energy sector.

Forty years ago, the Apollo 11 mission provided a dramatic display of America's innovation and spirit
of discovery. President John F. Kennedy explained that we chose to "go to the moon in this decade and
do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve
to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills."

The clean energy and climate challenge Is America's new space race. The United States has never
backed down from a challenge on this scale, and we urge you to again place our country at the
forefront of innovation and prosperity.

We, the undersigned state legislators, call on you to enact comprehensive clean energy jobs and
climate legislation that relies on continued close collaboration between state and federal
governments. We pledge our support in pursuit of a more prosperous, more secure, and more
energy Independent America.
