As a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Tony Cardenas has actively been involved in overseeing national energy and health policies. He believes that the science is clear. Climate change is not only a threat to America’s security but also to the economy. Because of his support of environmental values, the League of Conservation Voters gives Tony Cardenas a lifetime score of 84%.

In June, the EPA announced its decision to roll back President Obama’s Clean Power Plan (CPP). Months later, the Trump Administration revoked California’s power to use more strict limits on Greenhouse Gas Emissions than the federal government.

In the video below, Tony Cardenas, reacts to the Trump administration’s plan to revoke California’s right to regulate vehicle emissions. He speaks with Bloomberg’s David Westin on “Balance of Power.”

California is one of the largest economies in the world. Additionally, it sets the tone and the pace for progressive environmental protection. We must continue to ensure that our cities continue to thrive and maintain the standards we have set.

Tony Cardenas on Clean Air for California, America and the rest of the world.

Last week, the Trump administration revoked California’s tailpipe waiver under the Clean Air Act.

The state has relied on the waiver process to set their own tougher emissions standards for about 50 years. California sees the waiver as necessary to fight climate change and reduce air pollution.

In this video, Tony Cardenas reacts to the plan.

In 2016  Tony Cardenas, was still rallying for our students. This time, he was in D.C.

“Unfortunately, too few students in the United States today are exposed to computer science and given the opportunity to pursue high-quality programming and coding coursework,” the letter states. “By allowing more schools in our communities to teach vital skills like coding, programming, designing and debugging, we can make sure our kids aren’t left unprepared for a rapidly changing economy.”

His letter called for $100 million for Computer Science for All Development Grants in 2017, which would provide essential resources to help school districts expand students’ access to computer science from kindergarten through high school. This proposal was also included in the President’s budget request as part of his Computer Science for All initiative.

The letter was signed by 63 House members and supported by the STEM Education Coalition and the Computer Science Education Coalition. A copy of the letter is available HERE.

Its 2019 and Tony Cardenas still cares about the education of students in his district. For more information on the issues Tony Cárdenas is committed to visit THIS PAGE.
