CCL supporters (100,000 nationwide) meet annually with every Member of Congress regarding a plan to cut carbon emissions by pricing carbon fuels, called Carbon Fee & Dividend. That plan is now incorporated into the bipartisan Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act of 2019. Once enacted, this policy will reduce America’s emissions by at least 40% in 12 years. It is good for people, improving health and saving lives by decreased emissions. The carbon dividend puts money in people’s pockets, helping low and middle-income Americans.
