HR 763, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (EICDA) , is a market-efficient and revenue-neutral approach to reduce the carbon dioxide pollution that is a primary driver of the climate crisis. Introduced by a bi-partisan group of legislators, this bill would reduce national carbon pollution emissions by over 90% by 2050 by pricing carbon at $15 per metric ton and increasing $10 every year. The US Catholic Conference of Bishops has expressed support for the bill. Ask your House Representative to co-sponsor this bill and ask your Senators to introduce a similar bill on a bipartisan basis.
