February’s focus – Environment!
There’s a lot of excitement over the Green New Deal – all the Democratic presidential candidates have already all endorsed the plan, which is an amazingly comprehensive approach to tackling climate change.
The legislation is generating a lot of good debate about how tackling climate change not only affects the environment, but our economy. Read the 14-page legislation here.
While there are still a lot of details to work out, it’s imperative that the Green New Deal continue to be evaluated and considered. Now that Congressman Paul Tonko is chairing the Environment and Climate Change subcommittee, we’re lucky as his constituents to have an influence in his actions.
Call and let your representative know you want them to support the Green New Deal!
