Republicans and Democrats come together to solve climate change

Original cosponsors of HR 7173

For over a decade, our volunteers have asked their Members of Congress to work together to solve climate change. A viable climate change solution needs to be big and lasting —  which means bipartisan legislation. This policy will drive down America’s carbon pollution while unleashing American technology innovation and ingenuity.  Please call or write your elected represenatives and urge them to support the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act.

  • The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act was introduced on November 27, 2018, by original Democratic sponsors Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL), Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL), and Rep. John Delaney (D-MD), and Republican sponsors Rep. Francis Rooney (R-FL) and Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA).
  • This bill puts a price on carbon pollution and returns the revenue to American families on a monthly basis. Visit energyinnovationact.org for more details about how it works.
  • It’s bipartisan. Republicans and Democrats are both on board, solving the problem of climate change together.
  • It's effective. This is a big, broad solution that will reduce America’s greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% in the first 12 years.
  • It's good for people, improving health and saving lives by reducing pollution that Americans breathe. Additionally, the carbon dividend puts money directly into people’s pockets every month to spend as they see fit, helping low and middle income Americans.
  • It’s good for the economy, creating 2.1 million additional jobs in the first 10 years.
