The Climate Solutions Caucus is a bipartisan United States House of Representatives caucus supported by the Citizens' Climate Lobby whose members work to achieve action addressing the risks from climate change.[3] The caucus was started in February 2016, during the 114th Congress, by Representatives Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) and Ted Deutch (D-FL).[3]

On November 27, 2018, caucus members Ted Deutch (D-FL), Francis Rooney (R-FL), Charlie Crist (D-FL), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), and John Delaney (D-MD) introduced the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (HR 7173), which would implement a national carbon fee and dividend.[4]

Mission

According to Co-Chair Deutch's House website, the mission of the Caucus is:

"to educate members on economically-viable options to reduce climate risk and to explore bipartisan policy options that address the impacts, causes, and challenges of our changing climate."[5]

Members, 116th Congress

Membership of the caucus was previously restricted to consist of equal representation of Republicans and Democrats[5], but after the 2018 United States House of Representatives elections, this rule was loosened.[6] In the 116th Congress, the 65 members are as follows:[7]
