Protecting The Environment
Our community has felt the social and economic consequences of environmental disaster firsthand. The water issues stemming from Lake Okeechobee exemplify why it's absolutely critical that we work together to strengthen conservation programs, promote public health, defend our environment, keep our air clean and protect our waterways.
In addition to fighting for local environmental priorities like cleaning the water coming from Lake Okeechobee, I know that we must work together as a country to fix many of the environmental challenges we face. As research tools have become more robust, scientists have developed a more comprehensive understanding of our planet’s changing climate. Their research has made clear that we must do more to protect our Earth and air quality.
That’s why I’m proud to be a member of the Bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus. The Caucus is an important tool to educate members on economically-viable options to reduce climate risk and protect our nation’s economy, security, infrastructure and environment. Together, we can find a path forward to protect our planet for future generations.
In conclusion, I’m dedicated to supporting bipartisan initiatives and ensuring a continued dialogue in Congress on ways to protect our air, water and other natural resources.
