Fiscal Solutions to Climate Change

Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget

The United States faces a number of generational challenges, including high and rising national debt and the increasing effects of climate change. The Build Back Better agenda reflects one approach to address climate change through new spending and tax breaks. In addition to or in place of this approach, policymakers could consider carbon pricing as a means to reduce carbon emissions.

Please join us for Fiscal Solutions to Climate Change, a virtual forum that will include a panel of experts and discussion with Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI). The event will examine what role fiscal policy can play in mitigating climate change and what it would mean for the economy and the budget.

We will be joined by:

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)
Maya MacGuineas, Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget

Expert Panel:
Marc Goldwein, Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget
Jon Huntley, Penn Wharton Budget Model
Catrina Rorke, Climate Leadership Council

Date: Tuesday, May 17
