WASHINGTON, Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ClearPath Action Fund is endorsing Rep. Fred Upton, the veteran Michigan Republican who has capably chaired the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee for the past six years.
"Chairman Upton has overseen important updates that advance a conservative clean energy agenda," ClearPath Action Fund Founder and CEO Jay Faison said. "There's still a lot more to be done and he's a leader we need to continue this progress going forward."
The House last year approved the Upton-sponsored North American Energy Security and Infrastructure Act, which would help clean energy sources such as hydropower by streamlining onerous permitting to enable critical investments in our environment and the nation's energy security. It also requires the Department of Energy to lay the groundwork for the next generation of nuclear technologies by planning a critical testbed for advanced reactors here in the U.S.
Upton has backed bills aimed at supporting carbon capture and storage technologies. Michigan is a leader in carbon-capture research, from Western Michigan University to the University of Michigan, and Upton has helped secure funding for their efforts.
ClearPath Action Fund will tout Upton in innovative digital and mail campaigns run by Anthro and featured on many networks, including Facebook, Google, Twitter, SpotX and 4info. The campaign will leverage a sophisticated microtargeting strategy to identify persuadable clean energy voters. The extent of the campaign will be based on identifying the most cost-efficient means of impacting these voters by determining the cost-per-vote through a test-design methodology.
