ACC Officially Endorses

 
 

Rep. Carlos Curbelo FL-26

“In South Florida, issues like sea level rise and water quality aren't just about our environment – they're essential to our way of life and the continued growth and viability of our economy. From Everglades National Park to the Florida Keys Marine Sanctuary, our state is home to many of America’s most pristine natural resources and ecological treasures. I’m proud of my work to break through the polarization and build bipartisan consensus on renewable energy development and new technologies. These efforts will directly address the threats climate change and sea level rise pose to our local and national environment. I am honored to have the endorsement of American Conservation Coalition and look forward to continuing this important work.”
