Mike Doyle is the U.S. representative for Pennsylvania’s 14th Congressional District, including the City of Pittsburgh and nearby communities in Allegheny and Westmoreland counties. Doyle serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which has primary jurisdiction over energy and environmental policies. He has worked to protect the environment, create clean energy jobs in the United States, and reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil imports. His top priorities in this field have been increasing federal research on alternative and renewable fuels, cleaner use of fossil fuels and new power generation technologies. He also has been a leader of legislative efforts to promote greener, more energy-efficient appliances, automobiles and buildings. Doyle helped draft legislation to substantially reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, and remains committed to enacting legislation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote the transition to a sustainable economy. Throughout his service in Congress, Doyle also has worked to enact legislation to promote the clean-up and redevelopment of vacant, often polluted industrial brownfield sites. He has worked to help expand southwestern Pennsylvania’s energy innovation sector, and led the effort to transform a vacant Pittsburgh trade school into a LEED-certified center for developing clean energy technology and training workers for clean energy jobs.
