Reps. Fitzpatrick and Carbajal introduce meaningful bipartisan carbon fee bill

Representatives Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) and Salud Carbajal (D-CA) introduced a bipartisan carbon fee bill that will incentivize businesses to innovate and cut pollution, and will help fund infrastructure.

The Market Choice Act would institute a carbon fee and use the revenues to revitalize and upgrade aging infrastructure, fund energy innovation, make dividend payments to low-income households and more. The bill also contains critical climate backstops that will help ensure the program reaches emission reduction goals.

“EDF applauds Representatives Fitzpatrick and Carbajal for introducing the Market Choice Act,” said Elizabeth Gore, EDF Senior Vice President, Political Affairs. “This bill will cut climate pollution and generate revenue to invest in urgently needed infrastructure. Measures like the Market Choice Act are key components in the vital, comprehensive effort to curb climate change, revitalize our infrastructure, and create healthier communities.”
