House Passes Landmark Climate Bill. Stage is Set for Senate Action.

Dear David,

We did it!

Moments ago, on a 219 to 212 vote, the U.S. House of Representatives
passed the landmark American Clean Energy and Security Act, the most
important environmental and energy legislation in our nation's

Environmental Defense Action Fund and our broad network of members,
activists and strategic partners played a huge role in pushing this
bill over the top.

You helped generate tens of thousands of emails, thousands of phone
calls, dozens of paid ads, and countless legislative contacts with key
House members and their staff.

EDF President Fred Krupp released the following statement:

Today's vote is a huge achievement for the country and the climate,
and we applaud Speaker Pelosi, Chairmen Waxman and Markey, and all
members of the House who helped craft this landmark legislation and
get it passed.

The bill that emerged from the House has the fundamental structure we
need to significantly reduce carbon pollution while growing the
economy. It puts strong cap on emissions and reorients our energy
market to make low-carbon power the goal. It ensures that utility
rates will stay affordable and a competitive playing field for U.S.

Today's vote opens the door for President Obama to sign
comprehensive climate legislation into law this year.

For everything you and the rest of our Action Network community did to
help us achieve this historic victory, we can't thank you enough.

This is a day to remember, the day we began turning the corner toward
a green energy future -- a future free from the catastrophic threats
of run-away global warming.

We have our work cut out for us in the Senate, but today's victory
gives us real hope of finally signing climate legislation into law.

Thanks for your activism and support and for everything you help make
