House Ag Committee Adopts 25x'25 Resolution

The measure calls for 25% of energy to come from renewable sources by 2025.

The House Agriculture Committee adopted a resolution Thursday that calls for 25% of U.S. energy needs to be met by renewable sources by 2025. The 25x'25 measure will move to the House Energy and Natural Resource committees next, and is pending in the Senate.

"This resolution defines a new energy future for our nation. It's a firm goal on the way to a secure energy future," says Bill Richards, Co-Chair of the 25x'25 Steering Committee, the coalition of agriculture, environmental and energy groups that earlier handed a similar action plan to Congress.

Lead sponsors of the measure were Ag Committee Chairman Collin Peterson, D-Minn., and Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., along with Mark Udall, D-Co., and Zach Wamp, R-Tenn. Senate lead sponsors include Ken Salazar, D-Co., Charles Grassley. R-Iowa, Richard Lugar, R-Ind., Barack Obama, D-Ill., Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., and Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Tom Harkin, D-Iowa.
