Congressman Jared Huffman will host a virtual town hall Thursday, July 16 at 4:00 p.m. on the Climate Crisis Action Plan, a 538 page plan that would introduce many reforms aiming to bring the U.S. to a goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. You can read more about the plan on the House Committee on the Climate Crisis page, read the full text here, or read a summary here.
The plan includes some of Huffman’s own bills, such as the Wildfire Defense Act (H.R. 5091), which would grant funding for communities to develop Community Wildfire Defense Plans which would implement a variety of strategies for preventing wildfires, such as deploying microgrids with battery storage.
Huffman will be joined by former State Senator Fran Pavley, author of California’s landmark climate law AB32, and President and CEO of Natural Resources Defense Council Gina McCarthy.
