WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Deb Haaland, Vice Chair of the Natural Resources Committee, released the following statement after the U.S. House passed the Climate Action Now Act of 2019. The Climate Action Now Act, H.R. 9, is a bill that acts on climate by keeping the United States in the Paris Agreement, demanding a real plan from the Administration and laying the foundation for further innovative, effective action from the Congress. 

“New Mexico can be a leader in a renewable energy revolution. Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement put the futures of our kids at risk. By passing this bill we’re saying that we are committed to working with the rest of the world to act on climate and securing a future of good paying jobs in a renewable energy economy,” said Vice Chair Deb Haaland

Congresswoman Deb Haaland is working to make New Mexico a leader in addressing climate change while boosting the renewable energy economy through her role as Vice Chair of the Natural Resources Committee. The congresswoman continues to support new legislation, including the Green New Deal, to help protect New Mexico’s land, air, and water.
