Climate Solutions Caucus
Republicans and Democrats working together in Congress
Climate change is increasingly hurting Americans across the country, and Republican and Democratic legislators in Congress understand the need to act. To that end, both chambers of Congress have established bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucuses.
These caucuses are for members to discuss climate solutions and to work on climate legislation. Browse our past coverage of Climate Solutions Caucus activities and achievements.
