🐬🐙Celebrate with us🐠🐳

It's World Oceans Month, and a good time to recognize the importance of healthy oceans!

I'm proud to co-chair the bipartisan House Oceans Caucus, where we recognize that the health of our ocean must be considered a national and global priority. Recently I introduced bipartisan legislation to protect our ocean from further pollution and advance biodiversity.

Protecting the ocean is crucial in our efforts to curb climate change and take care of the planet. The House of Representatives has passed meaningful climate change legislation that would require the United States to stay in the Paris Agreement and pursue efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions.

But right now, that bill is held up in the Senate by partisan bickering. Sign our petition and tell the Senate: pass climate legislation NOW.

As an Oregonian, I know that tourism, fishing and crabbing industries, and our health depends on a coastline that is clean and free from toxic waste. The health of our ocean is critical to a healthy planet and a healthy economy, so I am doing all I can to stop threats from oil rigs, polluters, and other waste that harms marine life.

This World Oceans Month - and every day that I serve in Congress - I'm fighting to protect our natural resources.

Thank you for standing with me,

Suzanne
