Washington, D.C. – Chair Raúl M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) released the following statement on the two new orders signed by Interior Secretary Deb Haaland today to prioritize action on climate change and make policy decisions more transparent.
“This administration understands that preventing climate collapse and putting our economy on a more sustainable path takes a lot of work and meaningful consultation with people impacted by federal policies. Today’s secretarial orders set up our country for success on all fronts and move us past the fossil fuel reliance and pro-polluter agenda of the Trump administration. Real solutions require long-term engagement by dedicated public servants, not relying on quick fixes and magic bullets, and I applaud Secretary Haaland for taking a smart, science-based, public-facing approach to building a more sustainable and prosperous economy.”
