Climate Solutions Caucus

Note: This page refers to members of the Climate Solutions Caucus as constituted in the 115th Congress. We’ll update this page when caucus membership in the 116th Congress is determined.

What is the Climate Solutions Caucus?

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 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.

What has the Climate Solutions Caucus done?

The Climate Solutions Caucus has made great strides toward depoliticizing the issue of climate change. It allows Republicans and Democrats to engage in a bipartisan conversation, which is a crucial step toward any significant climate legislation. Since the caucus began in February 2016, members have taken individual and collective steps to raise the profile of the climate issue in Congress and begin to explore legislative solutions:

February 23, 2018A bipartisan group of 6 Caucus members sponsors the “Challenges and Prizes for Climate Act of 2018” to spur innovation in areas needed to combat climate change. Read more details.
February 7, 2018Caucus reaches 70 members. Among the 35 Republicans is former Energy and Commerce Committee chairman Rep. Fred Upton.
January 30, 2018Caucus Democrat Rep. Don Beyer introduces a carbon cap and dividend bill into the House, called the “Healthy Climate and Family Security Act of 2018.” Details here.
January 7, 2018Many Caucus members speak out on offshore drilling. Here’s a roundup of some of the statements.
November 30, 201712 House Republicans, 8 of whom are Climate Solutions Caucus members, signed a letter to congressional leadership opposing drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
November 1, 201710 caucus members spoke on the House floor about climate change and the need for bipartisan action.
November 1, 20173 Democratic caucus members and 14 other Democrats introduced a carbon pricing bill.
September 13, 2017The caucus held a meeting discussing the economic impacts of climate change on the outdoor and tourism industries.
July 13, 2017The caucus voted as a bloc to defeat an anti-climate amendment in the National Defense Authorization Act.
May 4, 2017Caucus members John Delaney (D-MD) and John Faso (R-NY) introduced the Climate Solutions Commission Act (H.R. 2326) along with 10 other caucus members. The legislation would establish a bipartisan panel to review “economically viable actions or policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions” and make recommendations to the president, Congress and states.
January 3, 2017The caucus was re-established for the 115th Congress, with just 6 Republicans and 9 Democrats after the November 2016 election. The membership was quickly brought back into bipartisan balance.
