Wexler Votes for American Clean Energy and Security Act 
(Washington, DC) Today, Congressman Robert Wexler (D-FL) voted with a majority of his colleagues in the House of Representatives to pass the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009.  This legislation will spur the development of renewable energy industries and create thousands of new jobs in America, reduce carbon emissions that contribute to global warming, and help America achieve independence from foreign oil.
