Environment and Energy

Too often, minority communities have borne the brunt of irresponsible environmental policies while also being inappropriately excluded from decision making. I believe in energy and environment policy that benefits all communities and preserves public lands for public uses. We must work together to promote research and development in clean energy, bolster nascent green energy technologies, protect wild public lands, and keep our environment healthy in perpetuity. I was proud to sponsor the Department of Defense Climate Resiliency and Readiness Act to ensure that one of the largest producers of greenhouse gasses prioritizes necessary developments in renewable technologies, builds on the success of NetZero pilots, and makes judicious use of taxpayer dollars. I also introduced the Targeting Environmental and Climate Recklessness Act (TECRA), to modernize the use of sanctions a key foreign policy tool - to meet one of our most pressing global challenges: climate change.
