Nebraska Congressman Co-Sponsoring Carbon Bill

Washington, July 7, 2020
WASHINGTON, D.C. –  On June 26, U.S. Reps. Don Bacon (R-NE) and Abigail Spanberger (D-VA), members of the House Agriculture Committee, introduced a companion bill to the Growing Climate Solutions Act, H.R. 7393. The Senate bill, S. 3894, was introduced by Sens. Mike Braun (R-IN) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) in early June.

The bill would standardize the agricultural carbon market, and was referred to the House Committee on Agriculture.

Bacon’s Republican colleague from Nebraska, Rep. Jeff Fortenberry, joined four Republicans and five Democrats in the House in cosponsoring the bill.
