Urge Support for the US Israel Energy Cooperation Act: 6/1/06
Urge Support for the US Israel Energy Cooperation Act (05/31/2006) “Both [Israel and the United States] share a desire for energy security and prevention of global warming. Therefore, through the United States- Israel Energy Cooperation Act and other joint frameworks, in collaboration with our US counterparts, Israel will increase its efforts to find advanced scientific and technological solutions designed to develop new energy sources and encourage conservation.” — Prime Minister Ehud Olmert May 24, 2006 Address before Joint Session of US Congress Representatives John Shadegg (R-AZ) and Brad Sherman (D-CA) are circulating a “Dear Colleague” letter in support of HR 2370, the United States Israel Energy Cooperation Act. This legislation would foster private sector and academic research on alternative energy and help increase research on energy efficient technologies. It would enable Israel and the United States to work more closely together to increase our energy security, move toward energy independence, and combat global warming. Please call your Representatives and ask them to cosponsor HR 2730, the United States Israel Energy Cooperation Act. Or, if you do not know your Representatives’ number call the Capitol Switchboard by dialing 202-224-3121 and ask to be connected to their office.
