WASHINGTON (August 25, 2020) –The U.S. Senate Select Committee on the Climate Crisis is expected to release a report providing a framework for Congress to act on climate legislation and set the course for a clean energy future.
John Bowman, senior advisor for the NRDC Action Fund, issued the following statement:
“Senate Democrats are joining their House counterparts in charting a roadmap that will help America avoid the worst impacts of climate change – and deliver a healthier, more prosperous and a more just and equitable future for all of us. Putting the well-being of people, communities and our economy ahead of powerful polluters is precisely the kind of leadership our country needs.”
