Members of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Energy and Commerce Committee released text for a draft of the CLEAN Future Act. The proposed legislation calls for net zero emissions of global warming pollution in the United States by midcentury. This science-based target looks to keep global warming below 1.5 additional degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) in order to avert the worst impacts of climate change. 

House leaders are asking for vigorous public feedback on the proposed bill in order to help congressional leaders lay the groundwork for passing comprehensive climate legislation in the future.
