Climate change is the greatest challenge of our time. That is why we welcome new solutions from our elected officials that seek to reduce harmful emissions and promote sustainable prosperity. Today, Senators Coons (D-DE) and Feinstein (D-CA) have introduced the Climate Action Rebate Act of 2019 which will place a price on carbon and help reduce emissions.
This bill also addresses the need to protect families from price increases and features provisions that will protect the bottom 60% of households from undue burdens. We are thankful for leaders who are working to find viable solutions to the climate crisis. This bill presents another opportunity to finally acknowledge the true cost of carbon emissions, spur clean energy innovation, and reduce pollution. We applaud these leaders and encourage other lawmakers to join the conversation and act on climate.
