We are in a period of great opportunity and challenge. Any policy proposals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions must include provisions that protect vulnerable low and moderate income households and communities from economic hardship due to increases in the cost of energy, goods and services. Low-income workers and communities must also have access to a fair share of investments in efficient homes, green buildings and low-emissions transit.
