Led by former Congressman Bob Inglis, republicEn.org joins the chorus of “EcoRight” voices congratulating Congressman John Curtis (R-UT) for formally launching the House Conservative Climate Caucus.
This new climate working group includes more than two dozen conservative lawmakers interested in learning more about climate change and free-enterprise solutions.
“As Congressman Curtis has said many times with respect to climate solutions, if you’re not on the table, you’re on the menu,” Inglis, republicEn.org Executive Director, said. “This new caucus he organized is a move in the right direction, literally. It’s refreshing to see so many right-of-center House members eager to lean in and learn how free enterprise climate change solutions are based in conservative principles.”
Curtis has been a member of the House Climate Solutions Caucus and has emerged as a climate change leader in recent years, following in the footsteps of other conservative climate leaders like former Congressmen Francis Rooney and Carlos Curbelo.
Curtis repeatedly has stated his desire to see more conservatives come to the table instead of conceding the issue to the left.
“As a conservative, I regret that we have let ourselves be branded as not caring about the Earth,” Curtis said last year. “It’s time to stop being on the defensive and go on the offensive.”
Curtis was previously a guest on republicEn’s podcast EcoRght Speaks. Listen to the episode here.
