The Climate Solutions Caucus is a bipartisan group in the US House of Representatives which will explore policy options that address the impacts, causes, and challenges of our changing climate. The caucus was founded in February of 2016 by two south-Florida representatives Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) and Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) who will serve as co-chairs of the caucus.
“The Caucus will serve as an organization to educate members on economically-viable options to reduce climate risk and protect our nation’s economy, security, infrastructure, agriculture, water supply and public safety,” according to documents filed with the Committee on House Administration.
Membership will be kept even between Democrats and Republicans.
CCL applauds this first ever bipartisan caucus on climate change and thanks Rep. Curbelo, Rep. Deutch, and all of the caucus members for their leadership on climate.

CCL praises formation of bipartisan House Climate Solutions Caucus – Press Release Feb 3, 2016
The bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus is co-chair by Republican Congressman Carlos Curbelo of Florida and Democrat Ted Deutch, also from Florida. Curbelo has been emboldened to lead on climate change because of support generated in his district by Citizens’ Climate Lobby. CCL volunteers secured endorsements for climate action from 55 mayors, commissioners, chamber of commerce leaders, scientists, state representatives and university presidents in South Florida. That support convinced Curbelo to become the first co-sponsor of the Republican resolution (H. Res. 424, introduced in September 2015) calling on the House to start working on climate solutions. A few months later, Curbelo led the charge for a group to do just that — the Climate Solutions Caucus.
