ASAP Needs Your Help Encouraging Members of Congress to Sponsor NCARS!

On January 20, Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Rep. Scott Peters (D-Calif.), along with a bipartisan group of seven colleagues, introduced the National Climate Adaptation and Resilience Strategy Act (H.R.6461/S.3531). 

How Can you Help ASAP?

  • You can learn more about the bill and why ASAP is excited about it in our statement of support
  • If you are excited about this legislation, there are three steps you can take: thank the original co-sponsors of the bill, encourage additional Members of Congress to co-sponsor the legislation, and encourage the committees to take up the legislation to move it forward. 
  • You can review this blog post for more information on thanking the original co-sponsor. 

Below is the list of Senators we hope to encourage to become co-sponsors. If you live in any of the states listed, it will be meaningful for your senator to hear from you! Even if you do not live in any of the states listed, you can still reach out to the senators listed and share why you think they should co-sponsor NCARS. 

Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah
Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina
Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida

The legislation has been referred to the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and the committees can decide whether to move forward with the legislation.
