Darren Soto To Host Climate Change Town Hall Wednesday In Kissimmee

U.S. Rep. Darren Soto, whose district includes part of Polk County, will host a Climate Change Town Hall at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22, in the Osceola County Commission Chambers in downtown Kissimmee.

According the announcement, the focus of the town hall will be to provide information on the Clean Future Act, which is being discussed in the House Committee on Energy & Commerce.

The legislation’s intent is to reduce carbon emissions in power generation and transportation, improve energy efficiency in buildings and to come up with ways to protect communities affected by climate change and air pollution and to offer support to state and local governments to work toward meeting the carbon-reduction goals.
