Luján stumps for climate change solutions

-A A +A

  Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.), a member of the Safe Climate Caucus, spoke on the House floor Wednesday on the need to address climate change.
With Hispanic Heritage Month beginning this week, Luján highlighted the importance of this issue with the Latino community.
During his remarks, Luján also highlighted his opposition to a House Republican plan to make steep cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.
“Mr. Speaker, it’s time for Congress to work together on a commonsense solution to address the impacts of climate change. As we begin Hispanic Heritage Month, it is important for us to recognize the impact climate change is disproportionately having upon minority communities across the country.
“Whether it’s farmers and ranchers in my home state of New Mexico struggling through devastating drought conditions, or communities that are being impacted by recent flooding as a result of more severe weather, millions of Americans have been impacted by the effects of climate change.”
Released earlier this year, a survey conducted by Public Policy Polling found:
• 74 percent of Latinos believe climate change is a serious or very serious problem, a higher level than the 65 percent among all American adults.
