Protecting Our Environment

 Climate change is real threat to our economy, our national security and to the health and well being of our children. That’s why I will take strong action to combat global climate change and protect our environment. I will:
  • Strongly oppose President Trump’s massive budget cuts for the clean up of the Chesapeake that would harm both our environment and our local economy.
  • Fight for vital investment in wind and solar power to lessen our dependence on fossil fuels that damage our environment.
  • Support legislation to bring back President Obama’s regulations to combat pollution from coal and transition coal jobs to the production of clean energy.
  • Work to support increased fuel efficiency standards so Americans reduce dependence on oil and cut down on harmful emissions.
  • Fight against President Trump’s dangerous budget cuts that would dismantle the Environmental Protection Agency.
