“This proposal is a disaster for the many Americans who struggle to pay their energy bills, for the fast-growing clean energy job sector and for America's global competitiveness,” said Kit Kennedy, director of NRDC’s Energy and Transportation Program. “Trump’s steep proposed cuts will gut programs that have a strong record of growing jobs, supporting U.S. clean energy businesses, and saving American families billions of dollars in lower energy bills. Congress needs to block this train-wreck proposal. It even goes so far as to cut weatherization assistance for the country’s neediest households, and the ENERGY STAR program, which has 18,000 private partners who help consumers and businesses save money by choosing the most efficient appliances, equipment, and buildings.”
