THIS is a national emergency!

Climate change is an emergency of the highest order.

That's why today, I'm proud to join Reps. Earl Blumenauer and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Bernie Sanders as an original co-sponsor of the Climate Emergency Bill.

As Chairman of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I'm focused on our nation's transportation systems and infrastructure and we're investigating bold new technology to move our country away from fossil fuel consumption, electrify our highways, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and transition transportation into the 21st century.

We need to take bold action and work towards the goals outlined in the Green New Deal and the Paris Climate Agreement.

Today, a huge concerted effort is pushing Congress and this administration to reduce carbon emissions and lessen the impact on climate change.

We have to work together to tackle this national emergency. Help me spread the word by sharing this news with your community and join the conversation on Facebook.
