WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) has joined the newly-formed bipartisan Senate Climate Solutions Caucus, led by Senators Chris Coons (D-DE) and Mike Braun (R-IN), which is bringing an equal number of Republicans and Democrats to craft and advance bipartisan solutions to address climate change. Additional members include Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Angus King (I-ME), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Michael Bennet (D-CO).
“Addressing climate change is going to require significant private sector investments and a major global breakthrough in innovation and technology. To that end, Congress should explore ways to incentivize the research, development, and deployment of clean technologies. We also need to consider solutions that will sustain communities that may be impacted by changes in energy technology, and I will continue to meet with folks from our rural and coal mining communities in Utah to hear their perspectives,” Romney said. “This caucus will serve as a starting point for a productive bipartisan dialogue as we work toward potential solutions for addressing climate change.”
