Please join me in addressing the severe and serious threat of climate change by cosponsoring H.R. 4051, the Climate Action Rebate Act of 2019. This legislation is designed to reduce emissions and drive down pollution while investing in American families,
rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure, and encouraging market-driven innovation in clean energy technologies.
Every day, more than 25 million children and thousands of school bus drivers breathe polluted air on their commute to school, which has a negative impact of student health and attendance, particularly for students with asthma and other respiratory conditions.
While the power sector has proven extremely efficient in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, other sectors, notably the industrial and heavy-duty transportation sectors have struggled to keep pace.
Our nation is in the midst of a clean energy revolution. More and more of our electricity is being generated by renewable energy and we are only beginning to utilize one of our great untapped renewable resources: offshore wind. Our nation’s very first offshore
wind farm came online in 2016 off the coast of New England and others are in development thanks to state and federal partnerships. In order to take full advantage of this burgeoning field, we need to make sure American workers are fully trained and
ready to pave the way for growth and innovation in this new American energy industry.
Climate change poses a variety of threats to human health. According to a 2016 report from the US Global Change Research Program, climate change will
cause a wide range of negative impacts on public health, including:
Please cosponsor my bill H.R. 4135 to require the removal of a statue of Confederate General Albert Pike from federal land near Judiciary Square in the District of Columbia. This statue is different from other Confederate statues elsewhere in the United
States, as it was authorized by Congress in 1898 and paid for, in part, with federal funds. The Freemasons, of which Pike was a member, donated the majority of the funds needed to build and install the statue in 1901.
I invite you to cosponsor the Farmer Fairness Act. The bill would extend the same Clean Water Act environmental liability requirements of Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) contract farmers to integrator companies.
By now you have received the invitation below to a briefing on food waste solutions. As co-chairs of the House Food Recovery Caucus, we hope that you will join this important discussion on Monday, October 21 at noon in Rayburn 2045.
As you know, earlier this year the House cast a historic vote for H.R. 1146, the Arctic Cultural and Coastal Plain Protection Act, to restore the protections for the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to the state before passage of the Republican tax bill.
In keeping with the House’s commitment to protecting the Arctic Refuge, our nation’s largest and wildest refuge, the House also included language in the Fiscal Year 2020 Interior Appropriations bill that would prevent a lease sale unless the Administration
took action to ensure that such a lease sale would produce sufficient revenue to match the projections from the Republican tax bill.
