Open Letter to Congress

June 15, 2017 (updated)

Dear Members of the U.S. House of Representatives:

As members of the American design and construction industry, we are dedicated to tackling the challenging issues that threaten our planet by creating healthy, productive, and safe communities for all, today and in the future. We are on the front lines addressing climate change in a meaningful and impactful way, facing current issues such as energy efficiency, water conservation, sustainable land use, resiliency, and adaptive reuse. More can be and must be done.

We strongly support the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus and thank the following 40
representatives for their courage in working across party lines to find solutions to this urgent
real-world challenge:

Mark Amodei, R, 2nd

New York:
John Faso, R, 19th
Peter King, R, 2nd
Tom Reed, R, 23rd
Elise Stefanik, R, 21st
Thomas Suozzi, D, 3rd

Lee Zeldin, R, 1st

Earl Blumenauer, D, 3rd

We are reaching out to encourage the remaining 395 House members from across all 50 states to join the Caucus as well to help face this unprecedented common challenge. We are finding that the rule requiring new Caucus members to join in pairs of one Republican and one Democrat is welcomed in an overwhelmingly positive way by the American people.

Of course, we would be pleased to join you and lend our expertise as needed to help move our communities forward in a healthy and prosperous way.


Thank you and sincerely,

670 Members of the American Design and Construction Industry
