Congressman Palazzo joins new Conservative Climate Caucus

By: Frank Corder - June 23, 2021

Utah Congressman John Curtis will chair the new group of over 50 Republican House members.

South Mississippi Congressman Steven Palazzo (R-MS04) announced Wednesday that he has joined the newly formed Conservative Climate Caucus.

In a release, new Caucus chair Congressman John Curtis (R-UT) said the goal of the Conservative Climate Caucus is to bring members of the Republican party together to educate each other on climate policies that will make real progress on reducing emissions through American innovation and resources.

“Proposals to reduce emissions and be good stewards of the earth do not have to hurt the American economy – in fact they do the opposite,” Curtis said. “There is a way to lower global emissions without sacrificing American jobs and principles – and I believe Republicans are the ones that can and should be leading the charge.”

Congressman Palazzo said in a tweet that the group will “prioritize the preservation of our climate without crippling our economy.”

“It’s time that the threats to our environment are addressed with common sense solutions,” Palazzo tweeted.

The new Caucus will be focused on educating Republican House Members on conservative climate solutions that align with Republican principles and are based on an agenda that will make real progress through American innovation and ultimately enhance American prosperity.
