Congressman Ted Lieu

Representing the 33rd District of California

Energy and Environment

"In California, I was honored to coauthor AB 32, the Global Warming Solutions Act.  But it’s clear to me that to solve climate change, we need America to do what California has done, and then for America to get other countries to do what California has done.  That’s why my first piece of legislation in Congress was the Climate Solutions Act of 2015: a bold, innovative plan to energize investment in green energy technology, set strong renewable energy standards and slash the carbon pollution that is damaging our planet."
