WASHINGTON (November 17, 2022) – Chair Kathy Castor of the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis released the following statement on Thursday after Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that she would step down as leader of House Democrats at the end of the 117th Congress:

“Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been the most effective climate champion in the history of the House of Representatives, cementing her legacy through decades of work to protect God's creation and build a healthy, resilient, and just America. After taking back the House majority four years ago, the Speaker immediately demonstrated her unwavering commitment to advancing climate action by creating our Select Committee and pushing for solutions that would lower costs, create jobs, and ensure justice for every American. Her tenacious leadership was crucial as we bridged the coalitions needed to pass the largest investment in climate solutions in the history of our nation. As she passes the torch to the next generation, we owe Nancy Pelosi an immense debt of gratitude.”
