Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee Announces Hearing on Restoring Federal Climate Leadership
Washington, D.C. – Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) and Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee Chairman Paul D. Tonko (D-NY) announced today that the Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee will hold a fully remote hearing on Tuesday, February 9, at 12 p.m. (EST) entitled “Back in Action: Restoring Federal Climate Leadership.”
“With the Biden Administration in place, the United States has a renewed opportunity to meaningfully and thoughtfully tackle the climate crisis – and we are determined to get it right,” Pallone and Tonko said. “It’s crucial that we use every tool in our toolbox in this fight, from executive actions to legislative solutions. We look forward to discussing the bold actions President Biden has already taken, and precisely where Congress must step in and step up to get the job done. Working together in tandem is critical if we are going to rebuild our economy and set down the path to net zero greenhouse gas pollution.”
