This is the March 24, 2021 hearing on "Clean Future Act: Powering a Resilient and Prosperous America," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Energy of the Committee on Energy and Commerce. From the Opening Statement of Bobby L. Rush: "Today, the Subcommittee on Energy will hold a legislative hearing as a continuation of the committee's work to address recent grid failures in the south-central region of our Nation. This morning, the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations held a hearing to identify the nature of this problem. We now convene to identify policies that will relaunch a much-needed Federal grid investment in the wake of these tragic failures. In February, extremely frigid, Chicago-like temperatures spread across the south-central region, resulting in historically high energy demand and disastrously low energy supply. This sharp energy decline was a result of every single source of power supply underperforming during the same weather event." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Yvonne McIntyre, Alison Silverstein, Karen G. Wayland, and Eric Hofmann.
