Please join the Bipartisan Policy Center for a special morning coffee chat with Sens. Mike Braun (R-IN) and Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) to discuss their legislative priorities in the Growing Climate Solutions Act and the Rural Forest Markets Act of 2020. Recognizing the role of the agriculture and forestry sectors as a critical climate solution, these bills create opportunities for U.S. producers and forest landowners to better access private markets for carbon and environmental credits.
Following the discussion with the senators, a panel of experts will provide their reactions and discuss their experiences with markets for natural carbon solutions.
