Green New Deal

A new Congress takes over in January. One of the exciting new developments is the energy that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York is applying to demand a “Green New Deal.” What’s that? At its heart is a draft resolution for the House to create a special committee to pump out legislation that would transition the economy (emphasis on jobs) to one powered by renewable electricity. Eighteen Democrats have signed on so far, including my own Representative-elect, Ayanna Pressley.

Today, I supported the Green New Deal by donating to Sunrise Boston, which is sending a busload of youth to Washington on December 10 to urge House leadership to create the special committee. Today, I also signed a petition (along with 58,000 others so far) that will be sent to House leadership urging the creation of the special committee.
