Gillibrand on climate change


Presidential candidate and New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand tells us that creating a clean procurement policy is a top priority for her environmental agenda. Gillibrand, an early endorser of the Green New Deal tells us, “The Green New Deal is a critical call to action and the federal government has a duty to help lead the way through its actions. We need to look at every opportunity that will help transition our country to a clean economy and one part of the answer should be using the government’s purchasing power by creating a federal ‘buy clean’ standard. I look forward to working with together Data for Progress and others in the environmental and labor community to build a clean energy economy with good-paying union jobs.”
