Problem Solvers Caucus Endorses Growing Climate Solutions Act
Bipartisan legislation win-win for farmers, the economy, and the environment
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, the Problem Solvers Caucus endorsed the Growing Climate Solutions Act, which aims to remove barriers for farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners to participate in the voluntary carbon credit marketplace. As producers look to reduce their environmental footprint, they often look to the carbon credit marketplace to offset their emissions.
Problem Solvers, Rep. Abigail Spanberger (VA-07) and Rep. Don Bacon (NE-02) brought the bill for endorsement, which garnered the support of more than 75 percent of the Caucus. The bill is co-sponsored by fellow Caucus Members, Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-01), Chrissy Houlahan (PA-06), John Curtis (UT-03), Elaine Luria (VA-02), John Katko (NY-24), Jim Costa (CA-16), Jaime Herrera Beutler (WA-03), Lou Correa (CA-46), Tom Rice (SC-07), Conor Lamb (PA-17), Anthony Gonzalez (OH-16), Scott Peters (CA-52), Ed Case (HI-03), and Josh Harder (CA-10).
The Growing Climate Solutions Act (H.R. 2820/ S. 1251) is supported by more than 75 agriculture, food, forestry, and environmental groups. This bipartisan, bicameral legislation is a win-win for America’s farmers, the economy, and the environment.Read the full release here.
