Plan to attend this EBC Rhode Island Leadership program with the Honorable Sheldon Whitehouse, United States Senator for the State of Rhode Island. This congressional briefing will update EBC members on recent developments in Washington, D.C. and on his priorities for the year ahead. The discussion will cover environment, energy, and climate change.

As a member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works and cofounder of the Senate Climate Action Task Force, the Senator will discuss his focus on fighting for smart solutions to address climate change and position Rhode Island as a leader in the clean energy economy. He will also review his efforts to form the bipartisan Senate Oceans Caucus to protect Rhode Island’s ocean and coasts for generations to come.

Issues that Senator Whitehouse will address include:

  • The Biden Administration’s Climate Initiatives
  • EPA and Climate Change issues
  • Offshore Wind in RI
