Despite holding a bare minimum of control in both chambers, during the last Congress Democrats managed to pass the Inflation Reduction Act, the most ambitious legislation targeting the climate crisis ever signed into law. However, as we enter a two-year period with Republican climate deniers in charge of the House, we now face the question of how we can continue and expand upon this climate action at the federal level. Oregon’s U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley will join an upcoming discussion to highlight continued opportunities for federal action, particularly from the executive branch, including implementing the legislation passed last Congress.
At our January monthly public general meeting, on Tuesday January 31st at 6:00pm, Southern Oregon Climate Action Now will host Oregon Senator Merkley to discuss: Expanding U.S. Climate Ambition in 2023.
