Clyburn on Comprehensive Energy Bill for the 21st Century
September 12 , 2008

WASHINGTON, D.C.—“This week the Democratic Caucus produced a home-grown, American-owned energy policy for the 21st century.  This is the legislation America has been waiting for, laying out a smorgasbord of resources to address our energy challenges—it protects taxpayers and addresses high gas prices; expands domestic drilling offshore and on land; expands renewable sources of energy; reduces our dependence on foreign oil and strengthens our national security; requires Big Oil to pay what it owes American taxpayers and ends subsidies to Big Oil, denying them the ability to double-dip; and, most importantly, creates good paying jobs here at home.”

Clyburn on Seventh Anniversary of the 9/11 Attacks
September 11 , 2008

WASHINGTON, D.C.—“Today we also resolve to honor the memories of those we lost on 9/11 through public service—by getting more involved in our communities, volunteering and reaching out a hand to those in need.  Because it is only by working together that we will make this great nation a more perfect union.”

August 29, 2008
