LEAP DELEGATES FROM across the United States brought Boilermaker issues to Capitol Hill April 15-17, scoring valuable face time in lawmakers’ offices. This year, in addition to leave-behind fact sheets, delegates presented a video brochure containing the film “CCS: Bridge to a Cleaner Energy Future,” which explains the urgent need for increased funding for the development of carbon, capture, use and storage (CCUS). The video, which automatically plays when the brochure is opened, proved popular on the Hill.
