BIDEN-HARRIS WHITE HOUSE
Everywhere, American businesses and communities are threatened, whether we are underwater in New Jersey or New Orleans, burning in the West or experiencing weather disasters destroying Midwest and Southern farms. The reality of climate change is an existential threat, not sometime in the future, but TODAY!
Rep. Peters, Sen. Coons Introduce Legislation to Re-assert U.S. Climate Leadership and Support American Workers
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Representative Scott Peters (CA-52) and U.S. Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) unveiled new, bicameral legislation to establish a border carbon adjustment (BCA) on polluting imports. Imposing a BCA will protect U.S. jobs, reduce global emissions, and provide enhanced support to communities that suffer the worst effects of climate change.
The ASBC stands with the Biden Harris administration in their sweeping progress made across economic and social policies in their first month in office. President Biden’s recent executive orders will advance an equitable, just future for all Americans.
As part of our ongoing work, ASBC has been engaged with the Biden-Harris Agency Review Teams throughout the White House administration transition, leading up to the inauguration in January 2021.
