Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
And autos are not the only product that could be made more energy efficient if we just put in place sensible requirements. This is also true of many appliances and even of entire buildings.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
As a National Academy of Sciences report concluded several years ago, we can improve fuel economy substantially using current technologies (not even including hybrid technology) without reducing safety, significantly raising prices or costing American jobs.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
But our energy woes are in many ways the result of classic market failures that can only be addressed through collective action, and government is the vehicle for collective action in a democracy.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
But we also need the government to continue to fund energy research, particularly longer-range, transformative research that companies are loathe to fund because it's unclear whether it will have any immediate benefits.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
Craft brewers are committed to promoting the safe and moderate consumption of their beverage, and work closely with their communities to prevent underage drinking and alcohol abuse.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
First, we should not be opening our coasts, all of our coasts, to oil drilling when we have not taken the first step, not the first step, to conserve oil.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
For the second straight year, craft beer is the fastest growing segment of the U.S. alcoholic beverage industry. In 2005, craft beer experienced a 9 percent increase in volume, nearly triple that of the growth experienced in the wine and spirits industry.

Having yet another vote on drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) does not constitute creative or long-range thinking about a balanced energy policy.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
Having yet another vote on refinery legislation that uses high oil prices as an excuse to weaken environmental protections and to give more legislative gifts to the oil industry is misguided in the extreme.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
I don't see a groundswell of people willing to raise gas taxes right now. That leaves fuel economy standards as the only effective tool we have as a nation to make a dent in our dangerous and ever growing consumption of oil.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
Let me start by emphasizing that I am open to efforts to expedite environmental procedures for true emergencies or in other clear cases where current laws are needlessly burdensome.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
Mr. Speaker, the time for an increase in the minimum wage has not just arrived; it is long overdue.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
Not only do craft brewers provide over 33,000 of our constituents with quality jobs, they also support our agricultural economy by purchasing barley and malt and hops grown, processed, and shipped domestically.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
Our oil problems are only going to get worse. Our trade balance is only going to get worse. So we have to slow the growth of U.S. oil consumption, particularly imported oil consumption.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
So the only way we're going to improve fuel economy or appliance efficiency swiftly and to the maximum extent practicable is if the government requires it.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
So we in Congress have a very clear choice. We can take largely symbolic action and sit back and fiddle while Americans burn more gasoline. Or we can pass concrete, effective legislation that will save consumers money while significantly reducing U.S. oil consumption.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
The National Academy of Sciences has made clear that mileage can be increased significantly with current technologies and without reducing safety.

The national minimum wage has not been increased in 9 years. By year's end, 21 States across America will have a minimum wage exceeding the Federal minimum wage.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
The U.S. uses most of its oil for transportation. We can limit U.S. demand for oil by requiring automakers to use the technology that already exists to improve fuel economy - technology that the automakers refuse to bring into the market despite societal demand.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
The way things are going, we are not too far from the day when it will take an hour's labor just to pay for the gasoline to get to the job.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
There is no way - no way - the U.S. can limit future demand unless we limit how much fuel we use for transportation.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
Today, there are over 1,300 independent breweries throughout the country, and their numbers are continuing to grow.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
We need to reduce or at least limit U.S. demand for oil as quickly as possible, and we need to develop new technologies that can further help address our addiction to oil in the future.
Quotation of Sherwood Boehlert
Well, for starters, we have to do more to create demand for new technologies that can reduce our dependence on foreign oil and environmental degradation.
