|Bill Analysis: The Climate Action Rebate Act of 2019 (S. 2284/H.R. 4051)
This bill provides a strong model for how revenue can be allocated to address the concerns of a number of vulnerable communities. We support the bill’s encouragement of U.S. participation in international efforts to address climate change along with such ambitious emissions reduction goals. While we ultimately believe that any carbon pricing bill must have bipartisan support to become law, this bill is an exciting advancement of the dialogue on climate solutions in Congress.

Reflecting on Your Story
- A story that connects with your identity (e.g. as a young person, as a student, as a Quaker or person of faith, as a person of color, etc.)
- Connect climate change to your community or congressional district (e.g. my community has been affected by flooding, hurricanes, drought, etc.)
- A story that reflects the need to advocate at this moment (e.g. urgency, we only have 10 years to address the climate crisis in order to avoid catastrophic climate impacts. Responsibility, the least responsible are facing the brunt of climate impacts or as the greatest historical emitter of greenhouse gases, the United States has a moral responsibility to address climate change.)
- A story that highlights the benefit of carbon pricing legislation.
