Jan 14, 2020 Opening Statement

Thank you, Chairwoman Johnson. As we start the second session of this 116th Congress, I want to thank you for your leadership. Like many of the hearings we held last year, today’s hearing is an opportunity for a constructive dialogue on the issue of climate change. 

Almost one year ago we held the Science Committee’s first hearing of the Congress titled, “The State of Climate Science and Why It Matters.” We heard testimony from a similar panel of IPCC authors and scientists.

Thank you, Chairman Lamb.

My amendment addresses a topic we are all familiar with that remains relevant to the bill proposed today. H. Res. 109, or the Green New Deal resolution, proposes federal action that would be significantly damaging to the U.S. economy.

My amendment spells out my concerns on the impact these policies would have on my constituents in Texas and the nation if they were to be enacted.
