Senior House Energy and Commerce Democrats unveiled a template of their plan to combat climate change this Congress that would take a sector-by-sector approach to eliminate carbon dioxide and reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

Their 981-page bill — an expanded version of last year’s CLEAN Future Act — calls for a federal clean energy standard that sets an interim goal of 80 percent clean electricity by 2030 and 100 percent by 2035. The bill represents a push from Democrats for aggressive action on climate change that’s in line with the goals laid out by President Joe Biden and as part of his Build Back Better agenda.
