Environment and Energy

We must be good stewards of the planet and take care of the environment. Wisconsin's natural resources, from the shores of Lake Michigan in Kenosha and Racine to the Ice Age Trail that runs through Janesville and Waukesha, are an important part of what makes our state a great place to live and work. I believe we have a responsibility to protect resources like these for generations to come. I want to ensure that we pursue commonsense solutions that also safeguard jobs and the economy. I believe we can create opportunity, protect the environment, and address climate change at the same time.

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Bryan Steil released a statement following his vote against H.R. 9, the Climate Action Now Act.

“Global climate change is real. To reduce carbon emissions, we must hold China and India accountable. We also need a technology-based approach,” said Steil. “The Paris Agreement fails to hold China and India accountable, making the Agreement unworkable. Heavy-handed federal regulations drive up energy costs. Instead, we must encourage technology developments to address climate change.”
