“We have a lot of work to do on this issue, and communities like mine in South Florida are counting on us to come together and have productive discussions about what we can do to mitigate the effects of climate change and make our nation more resilient. The caucus has such a diverse group of members, and we’ve gained great momentum only a few weeks into the 115th Congress. I’d like to thank Representatives Love, Stefanik, Fitzpatrick, Mast and Beyer for joining our group and I’m looking forward to working with them and the rest of the caucus on solutions that will protect our environment and unleash a new era of American innovation.” ??

Representatives Carlos Curbelo (FL-26) and Ted Deutch (FL-22), the co-chairs of the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus, welcomed five new members to the Caucus, rounding out the membership early in the 115th Congress to twenty members evenly split between Democrats and Republicans.

The newest members of the Caucus are Reps. Don Beyer (VA-08), Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-08), Mia Love (UT-04), Brian Mast (FL-18), and Elise Stefanik (NY-21).

“We have a lot of work to do on this issue, and communities like mine in South Florida are counting on us to come together and have productive discussions about what we can do to mitigate the effects of climate change and make our nation more resilient,” Curbelo said. “The caucus has such a diverse group of members, and we’ve gained great momentum only a few weeks into the 115th Congress. I’d like to thank Representatives Love, Stefanik, Fitzpatrick, Mast and Beyer for joining our group and I’m looking forward to working with them and the rest of the caucus on solutions that will protect our environment and unleash a new era of American innovation.” 



“Our bipartisan caucus is starting off the new Congress by expanding our membership and showing our colleagues that Republicans and Democrats can put partisan politics aside for work on climate change,” said Deutch. “These new members represent diverse regions of the country, from upstate New York to the Mountain West, and they have shown their readiness to find bipartisan solutions for this crisis.”



The mission of the Climate Solutions Caucus is to educate members on economically-viable options to reduce climate risk and to explore bipartisan policy options that address the impacts, causes, and challenges of our changing climate. As determined by the co-chairs, the Caucus membership will consist of equal representation by Democrats and Republicans.
