Representative Alan Lowenthal (D-CA) offered an amendment to H.R. 5538, the Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017, which would prohibit using funds in contravention of a Department of Interior order calling for the development of clean energy on public lands. Public lands represent a significant resource for wind and solar development, which we must expand to fight climate change.
