Synopsis:
NATIONAL CLEAN CITIES, INC. PROMOTES ALTERNATIVE FUELS IN DC HILL BLITZ WASHINGTON, DC, Feb. 11, 2004 – National Clean Cities members were in Washington DC today to meet with more than 110 Congressional representatives for the Annual Washington Day Hill Blitz. The purpose of the meetings was to encourage congressional representatives to support local Clean Cities Coalitions across the country. NCC Inc. is a membership-based, non-profit organization that strives to develop a robust and sustainable market for alternative transportation fuels, clean and efficient vehicles, and advanced transportation technologies. The group’s mission is to promote and help deploy alternative fuel vehicles, their infrastructure, and advanced transportation technologies in communities and along transportation corridors. National Clean Cities is asking members of congress to increase funding of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program by $5 million to $16 million overall for FY 2004. The additional funding will be used to expand the Clean Cities Portfolio and support local coalitions. The members traveled to their meetings in clean-burning natural gas buses. “We’re asking representatives to support legislation that includes tax incentives for all alternative fuels,” said NCC Executive Director, Greg Zilberfarb. “The result will be a better environment, increased national energy security, reduced dependence on imported oil, more economic opportunities and the protections of public health.” The U.S. DOE Clean Cities Program is comprised of approximately 80 locally based coalitions, representing 480 stakeholders, dedicated to the expansion and success of the alternative fuels market in the U.S.
