As the top Democrat on the powerful House Energy & Commerce Committee, Rep. Frank Pallone, Jr. is a leader in the fight against climate change and our transition to a clean economy. He helped author key legislative provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act, which is the most significant climate law in our country’s history. He also led the passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that has delivered federal funding to New Jersey to bolster the state’s electric vehicle infrastructure and invest in safe drinking water. It also tackles dangerous PFAS chemicals and funds Superfund and Brownfield cleanups. In this lecture, Rep. Pallone discussed the development and passage of these new laws, the road ahead for implementation, and the benefits that the legislation will bring to New Jersey, our country, and the future of our planet.
