At 11:00 am this Friday, July 14, DC Councilmember Mary Cheh’s Committee on Transportation and the Environment is hosting a public hearing in Room 500 on a new “Green Finance Authority” and other climate resolutions. It’s the last day before the council breaks for summer recess.
Our coalition needs to turn out in force. The legislation under consideration at Councilmember Mary Cheh’s hearing could help move the ball forward for climate action, but it’s missing the solution we just can’t live without: a progressive, economy-wide price on carbon pollution.
Here are the details:
WHAT: Show support for a strong carbon fee-and-rebate policy at the D.C. Council public hearing
WHEN: Friday July 14, 11:00 am
WHERE: John A. Wilson Building, 1350 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
ROOM: Room 500
WHY: Because the planet cannot wait!
