Bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus Announces Slate of Bills to Include in Upcoming Farm Bill

The slate reflects bipartisan initiatives led by members of the Caucus

  • Reps Houlahan and Garbarino

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Representatives Andrew Garbarino (R-NY) and Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA), co-chairs of the Climate Solutions Caucus, announced the 29 bills Caucus members are championing for inclusion in the upcoming Farm Bill. All 29 bills are bipartisan and are led or co-led by members of the Caucus. Alongside the announced slate of bills, Reps. Garbarino and Houlahan also wrote a letter to House Committee on Agriculture Chair Glenn Thompson (R-PA) and Ranking Member David Scott (D-GA) outlining the importance and impact of including these legislative initiatives.


“As Co-Chairs, we have maintained the Farm Bill as a priority for the Caucus in recognition of the legislation’s role in shaping agricultural policy, supporting farmers, ensuring food security, promoting conservation, and bolstering rural development in the U.S. The effects of climate change are already making significant impacts on agriculture and rural communities. Increased instances of extreme weather events, rising temperatures, shifts in water availability, and growing zones pose serious challenges for both U.S. food production and producers alike. Crop losses, reduced yields, increased input costs, and market volatility impact farm incomes, employment, land values, and food prices across the nation. These challenges require a proactive, integrated approach that promotes resilient agriculture and rural development,” the co-chairs wrote.
