On June 8th, Rep. Scott Peters (D, CA-52), Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R, FL-26), and six other members introduced H.R. 2858, the bipartisan SUPER Act, which seeks to reduce short-lived climate pollutants like black carbon, methane, and hydro-fluorocarbons (HFCs).
President Trump announced his decision to withdraw the United Stated from the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s Paris Agreement. FCNL strongly denounces this decision, and urges the President to reconsider.
The President’s proposed cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) and other agencies would deeply hurt U.S. development of renewable
energy, the ability to enforce US clean air and clean water laws, and
efforts to address climate change.
In order to increase Pentagon spending and fund massive tax cuts for the wealthiest people in our country, the budget that President Trump proposes for fiscal year 2018 decimates programs that prevent violence, ensure clean air and water, and protect the health and well-being of millions.
President Trump’s budget presents a clear – and alarming – vision of our country’s future. Congress should reject this proposal to fund billions in new spending for war and tax cuts at the expense of the lives and well-being of families and communities.
