#WA03Debate Fact Check: Long Supports Creating a Strong Clean Energy Economy in Southwest Washington
VANCOUVER, WA — Jaime Herrera Beutler continues to make this debate about partisan politics, but it’s really about Southwest Washington. Carolyn Long has been crystal clear that she does not support the Green New Deal or a carbon tax. She absolutely supports fighting climate change and protecting our environment and the communities of Southwest Washington. Long supports a bipartisan measure to expand clean energy and create a strong clean energy economy with good jobs in Southwest Washington, reduce emissions, and protect fisheries.
With unprecedented wildfires this summer, damaging some of the most pristine areas of Southwest Washington, Carolyn Long called out Jaime Herrera Beutler in September for her void in leadership on climate change. Jaime Herrera Beutler continues to sit by silent, while Trump rolls back protections for our environment. Southwest Washington needs a strong leader with a commitment to environmental stewardship.
