June 10 Guest Speaker – Congressman Ted Deutch
Just days before 1,000 CCL volunteers hit Capitol Hill, Congressman Ted Deutch — Democratic co-chair of the House Climate Solutions Caucus — joins us to provide an overview of the caucus’ activities and where progress is happening between Republicans and Democrats on the climate issue.
Background: Deutch represents Florida’s 22nd district, home to communities throughout western Palm Beach County and Broward County in South Florida and is now serving his fifth term in the 115th Congress. In addition to the Climate Solutions Caucus, he is a member of the House Judiciary Committee, the House Ethics Committee, and the House Foreign Affairs Committee, on which he serves as Ranking Democrat on the Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee.
