Climate Change Fairness in the House Ecology Committee
Our executive director Remy Trupin made a presentation today to the House Ecology and Parks Committee work session on ensuring that climate change policy protects lower income consumers.
During the work session, Representative Upthegrove talked about a letter that was sent to the Governor last summer calling for equitable action on climate change. It was signed by a broad coalition of environmental, faith, and social justice organizations.
Alan Durning from Sightline also presented alongside Remy. Alan has written a useful primer on cap and trade policy. Sightline is one of the many organizations we've been working closely with to develop smart policy solutions to the problem of climate change.
