This week, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on H.R. 9, the Climate Action Now Act. This legislation is an important step toward reducing greenhouse gas emissions and protecting the public’s health from the worst impacts of climate change, including increased air pollution, extreme heat and other extreme weather events. The bill would help ensure the U.S. reduces greenhouse gas emissions as called for under the Paris Agreement and would also require the administration to develop a comprehensive plan to meet its contributions under the agreement.
Take the time to send a message to your representative urging support for H.R. 9 when it comes to the House floor for a vote.
