take action: house economic recovery bill

 President Obama has called on  Americans to double the use of  renewable energy in the next three  years, and this week the House of  Representatives will take up a bill that  is vital to fulfilling that vision. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Tax Act includes a new grant program that would make tax incentives for the renewable energy industry usable even during an economic downturn.

Please urge your representative to vote in favor of this bill.
