Climate Smart Ports Act proposed in United States

US Congresswoman from the state of California, Nanette Diaz Barragán, has introduced the Climate Smart Ports Act to the floor of the House of Representatives. She was joined by 21 co-sponsors on the bill, which would establish a pipeline of US$1 billion per annum for port decarbonization initiatives. 

If passed, the act would improve air quality and health of those living and working around American ports, as well as increase the need for clean energy jobs in the American economy.
