Rep. Frankel Opposes Republican Bill Putting Polluters Over People

Washington, DC – Today, Representative Lois Frankel (FL-22) released the following statement after opposing H.R.1, a Republican bill that puts polluters over people. The bill, if signed into law, would gut environmental protections on public lands, raise energy costs, and roll back President Biden’s historic action to combat climate change.

“The Republican H.R. 1 puts polluters over people with an attempt to roll back the historic progress Congressional Democrats and the Biden Administration made to combat the climate crisis and create new clean energy jobs,” said Rep. Frankel. “Republicans are proposing a dangerous policy that would put Florida at further risk to the effects of climate change, like flooding, hurricanes, and rising sea levels.”
