Bipartisan Fusion Caucus Leaders Applaud House Energy and Commerce Committee Passage of Landmark Fusion Energy Bill

Today, Congressional Fusion Energy Caucus Co-Chairs Lori Trahan (D-MA-03), Don Beyer (D-VA-08), Chuck Fleischmann (R-TN-03), and Jay Obernolte (R-CA-23) issued the following statement after the House Energy and Commerce Committee passed their bipartisan Fusion Energy Act:

“Fusion energy has the tremendous potential to significantly lower energy costs for families, improve our electric grid, and strengthen our national security all while reducing our carbon footprint. American researchers and fusion energy companies need regulatory certainty to invest in and win the race to unlock commercial fusion energy. Passage of our bipartisan Fusion Energy Act today by the House Energy and Commerce Committee moves us one step closer to achieving that reality, and we look forward to working with our colleagues to pass this legislation on the House floor, advance it through the Senate, and see it signed into law.”
