Before the “Green New Deal” was announced by Congressional supporters, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, H.R. 763, was introduced as proposed Federal Legislation.

Climate Monitor’s Mitch Chester spoke with Citizens’ Climate Lobby’s Miami Leader Greg Hamra about H.R. 763, how it offers a creative and practical vehicle for the “Green New Idea” initiative, and the opportunities for the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate to enact a bipartisan climate solution to drive down carbon pollution.

The interview was conducted on Sunday, February 24, 2019, as Mr. Hamra was returning from a Citizens’ Climate Lobby meeting in Tampa, Florida.
