Congress is required to determine if a bill they're considering adds to the federal deficit before they vote on it. The reason is simple: Our lawmakers should at least know if they're adding more debt for the next generation to pay off. The same should be true of climate change—but it isn't. When Congress votes on an energy bill, they should know if they’re making climate change better or worse.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein has taken a step towards changing that, by adding an amendment to the energy bill currently under consideration in the Senate, requiring that the bill's climate pollution impact be evaluated after the bill is passed.
Thank Sen. Feinstein for making climate change part of the Senate's energy conversation.
Dear Sen. Feinstein,
