WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Mike Braun (R-Ind.) today launched the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus, the first of its kind in the U.S. Senate. The caucus will bring together an equal number of Republicans and Democrats to find common ground on solutions to address climate change while strengthening American competitiveness and creating opportunities for U.S. workers.
“I am determined to find solutions to the real problems facing our country and our world,” said Senator Coons. “Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time, and in order to tackle it, we must act in a bipartisan way. I’m proud to launch the first Senate Climate Solutions Caucus with Senator Braun to take the politics out of this important issue and lay the foundation for real, meaningful solutions that can be signed into law.”
“As a life-long conservationist, I am proud to launch the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus with Senator Chris Coons,” said Senator Braun. “For too long, Washington has been paralyzed by partisan gamesmanship, unable to have productive conversations about our changing climate. Through this caucus we can have real conversations about protecting our environment, securing American’s energy future and protecting American manufacturing jobs.”
The Senate Climate Solutions Caucus will meet regularly and convene experts from across the political spectrum to craft bipartisan solutions. The caucus will operate by the principle of unanimous consent, acting only when each member agrees. Read more about the Senate Climate Solutions Caucus here.
