Faso advocates for prize competitions for climate change

Apr 17, 2018 10:57 am
Rep John Faso (R-Kinderhook) co-authors a story in The Hill with Illinois Democrat Dan Lipinski brag about their Challenges and Prizes for Climate Act of 2018. The bill, H.R. 5031, "direct[s] the Secretary of Energy to provide for prize competitions relating to climate and energy." The bill does not itself address climate change, but directs former Texas Governor Rick Perry to create prize competitions around carbon capture, energy efficiency, energy storage, climate adaptation and resiliency, and data analytics "to better understand or communicate about climate."
