REPUBLICANS WHO SUPPORT CLIMATE ACTION WILL TESTIFY BEFORE THE SENATE DEMOCRATS’ SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON THE CLIMATE CRISIS

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i), Chair of the Senate Democrats’ Special Committee on the Climate Crisis, will convene a hearing titled “The Right Thing To Do: Conservatives for Climate Action” on Thursday, July 25 at 11:30 a.m. ET. The special committee, which is affiliated with the DPCC, will hear from conservatives who are focused on climate action, and learn how they are working to decrease the partisanship surrounding this issue and find a collective path forward.

“Elected Republicans are mostly awful on climate, but it wasn’t always that way, and it doesn’t have to be that way in the future,” said Chairman Schatz. “Conservatives across the country support climate action because of their faith, their commitment to fiscal responsibility, and their conservative values. I’m looking forward to hearing their views at our next hearing.”
