Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer and their colleagues in the U.S. Senate should take immediate action to pass the Clean Energy Jobs and Oil Accountability Act (S. 3663) when they return to Washington, D.C., this month. This critical legislation will address much-needed drilling reforms and safeguard our wildlife and wild places.

The act would improve offshore drilling management and crisis response, guarantee funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund, be an important tool for preserving and restoring habitat in the Gulf and beyond, and invest in Home Star, an energy efficiency program that lowers costs for consumers and creates jobs.
