Join NAZCCA and David Spence and Charlie McCallie of the Flagstaff Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL) Team for a briefing on the bill and learn what you can do to help solve climate change! David and Charlie will give a background to the bill, the progress that has been made, and how this national legislation if passed, could be a major step forward to get us into clean energy.

Flagstaff Chapter of the Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL) is an international volunteer organization that works to build political will for a national carbon fee and dividend policy. CCL has worked tirelessly in Northern AZ in support of a national price on carbon - widely recognized as an essential element of a climate change solution at the scale and in the timeframe we need. The Flagstaff CCL team were instrumental in getting a resolution from the City of Flagstaff urging Congress to pass carbon fee and dividend legislation and are now working on a newly introduced bill:

The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act of 2019 was recently introduced in the House (HR 763). It’s a strong bipartisan bill following the carbon fee and dividend model—effective, good for people, good for the economy, and revenue neutral, so won't grow government as it uses the market to drive emissions down to 90% of 2016 emissions by 2050.
