Climate Solutions Caucus
The Climate Solutions Caucus is a bipartisan United States House of Representatives caucus supported by the Citizens' Climate Lobby whose members work to achieve action addressing the risks from climate change. The caucus was started in February 2016, during the 114th Congress, by Representatives Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) and Ted Deutch (D-FL).
On November 27, 2018, the caucus members Ted Deutch (D-FL), Francis Rooney (R-FL), Charlie Crist (D-FL), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), and John Delaney (D-MD) introduced the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (HR 7173), which would implement a national carbon fee and dividend.
According to Co-Chair Curbelo's House website, the mission of the Caucus is:
"to educate members on economically-viable options to reduce climate risk and to explore bipartisan policy options that address the impacts, causes, and challenges of our changing climate."
