The American Petroleum Institute released the following statement on the announcement of the Congressional Climate Solutions Caucus, co-chaired by U.S. Senators Mike Braun (R-IN) and Chris Coons (D-DE):

“API applauds the formation of the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus,” said API spokesman Ben Marter. “The risks of climate change are real and the solutions must be equally real. Our industry is committed to meeting the challenge head-on, investing billions in low- and no-carbon technologies, cleaner fuels and driving emissions to their lowest level in a generation, all while delivering the energy that American families rely on every day. We look forward to working with the caucus to develop policy solutions that balance environmental protection with economic growth.”
