Environment

If we don’t have clear air and clean water for ourselves and our children, nothing else matters. I strongly oppose the actions of Trump Administration to dismantle the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to enforce standards for our health and safety under the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. We know that low-income communities, communities of color and those in urban areas are especially vulnerable to toxic pollutants and chemicals.

I believe that informed environmental policy based on science and innovations in green energy should play a significant role to ensure a good quality of life for future generations.

In Congress, I would support initiatives and incentives to transition to 100 percent Clean Energy by 2050, such as extending the solar investment tax credit (ITC) and the wind production tax credit (PTC). Solar already provides more employment than oil, coal or gas combined.
