Pingree Launches New Web Page to Update Constituents About How Congress is Addressing Climate Crisis
Portland, Maine, January 21, 2020
Congresswoman Chellie Pingree (D-Maine) today launched a web page to help constituents track the legislative initiatives she’s supporting in the 116thCongress to address the climate crisis. The page, hosted at pingree.house.gov/climatechange, serves as a transparent and easy-to-navigate resource for constituents to stay updated on Pingree’s legislative work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote a clean economy, and preserve our natural resources in the face of climate change.
“Maine has been acutely affected by the climate crisis…The natural resources that make our state beautiful and valuable are under massive threat.” said Pingree on her new web page. “This page was designed to keep [my constituents] updated about the progress Congress is making to fight climate change. Together, these bills take immediate action to address and mitigate the climate crisis.”
In the 116th Congress, Pingree has already introduced 3 bills related to the climate crisis: H.R. 1716: Coastal Communities Ocean Acidification Act, H.R. 3596: Keep America's Waterfronts Working Act, and H.R. 3981: Food Date Labeling Act. Additionally, Pingree has cosponsored 49 bills related to climate change in this Congress.
