Today, Representative Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) introduced the bipartisan Market Choice Act, an ambitious plan to incentivize a free-market transition toward clean, renewable energy. The bill will significantly drive down greenhouse gas emissions, direct most of the revenue raised toward much-needed infrastructure investment, and ensure that low-income households are protected from related energy price increases.
“A price on carbon is long overdue, and needs to be one of the first steps we take to tackle the climate crisis at a national level,” said Kyle Meyaard-Schaap, National Organizer and Spokesperson for Young Evangelicals for Climate Action. “We’ve long advocated that durable climate policy must be bipartisan. We applaud Rep. Fitzpatrick and co-sponsors Reps. Rooney (R-FL), Carbajal (D-CA), and Peters (D-CA) for their courage and their commitment to rising above partisan acrimony and putting forward a common sense solution to help us move toward a 100% clean energy economy.”
