WASHINGTON, DC – Climate Leadership Council CEO Greg Bertelsen issued the following statement on Representative Brian Fitzpatrick’s (R-PA) MARKET CHOICE Act, co-sponsored by Representative Salud Carbajal (D-CA):
“A nationwide carbon price is the most cost-effective policy option to significantly lower emissions and encourage clean energy investments across the economy. By enacting a predictable price on carbon, we can harness the power of market forces to lower emissions and stimulate innovation in all sectors. The Climate Leadership Council supports efforts like the MARKET CHOICE Act that would benefit the environment and strengthen the U.S. economy.”
The Climate Leadership Council works with a broad set of stakeholders to promote the most cost-effective, equitable and politically-viable climate solutions.
