Team Update – Feb ’24

Good news! We have been feeling cautiously optimistic after learning last week that President Biden has paused permitting for new liquid natural gas export approvals. This is one big step in the right direction. Now we need to demand that all gas exports are permanently banned.

The Agriculture team has been very busy so far this year (as always) and have met with the offices of Reps. Strickland, Smith, and Jayapal on Farm Bill Priorities. After all, the Farm Bill might be the most important climate bill this Congress will pass. Stay tuned for an action alert later this week with ways to advocate for a stronger Farm Bill.

Next week the Federal Policy Team will be meeting with Senator Cantwell’s office on topics such as clean energy standards for hydrogen hubs, FERC reform, the Farm Bill, the Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act, and more. If you are interested in learning more and lobbying your legislators on climate justice issues, contact Beth B. or Linnea, or join the Federal Policy Team meeting every first Wednesday of the month at 5pm on Zoom. Or sign up for Federal Policy listserv here.
