“Climate change is a threat to our economy, our national security, and our children’s future. In the face of this serious problem, we don’t understand how calling for this vote helps to make progress toward climate solutions. Today’s action does nothing to make our country safer and stronger.

“Many Republicans have started to propose serious solutions to the problem. We urge Senator Mitch McConnell to do the same.”
