Utahns: Tell Sen. Romney and Sen. Lee you support a transition to clean energy
As the U.S. works to decide which climate solution is best for our country, Congress has been hearing from overwhelmingly Democratic constituents. Will you let your Utah Senators know that their conservative constituents support a transition to a clean energy, too?
We need business and industry to lead the way while we transition to clean energy. Any legislation Congress passes for the climate should drive innovation that will be good for businesses and create millions of new jobs for Utahns.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I contact Utah’s Senators?
As a Utah voter, constituent and engaged citizen, it’s your job to let your elected representatives know what you care about most. Your Senators want to hear from you so they know how best to represent the state of Utah on a national stage. If you don’t tell them you’re concerned about the environment, they won’t know.
What should I say?
We’ve included a sample script in the email tool. But remember, emails are always better when personalized! Feel free to ask for a transition to clean energy in your own words or tweak the script before sending.
Why should I want a transition to clean energy?
Enough is enough. Americans should not have to bear unstable gasoline prices or high costs to heat their homes in colder months. We need to lead the world in this clean energy transition with legislation that spurs American innovation. It’s time to kick foreign oil (especially Russian oil) to the curb and put the U.S. in the driver’s seat on a world stage, above other nations like China that are intent on winning the economic race with clean energy technology.
Why is a transition to clean energy good for Utah?
A market-based transition to clean energy is good for all American businesses, Utah included. Areas like Silicon Slopes will lead the way on renewable energy solutions, with tech startups in high demand. Transitioning to a clean energy economy will also protect Utah’s land, air and water. With the largest average household size in the nation, it’s critical our children receive the same gifts we received from Utah’s environment.
