DC Hill Update 2/16: Extreme weather shuts down Capitol Hill

US Capitol small

Everything in the nation's capital took a backseat to two major snowstorms that dumped over 32 inches of snow on DC last week. Congress fell behind and climate deniers took advantage of the storm to stir up baseless controversy. Momentum is still building behind a much-anticipated Senate jobs bill, but members of Congress are home this week for the President's Day Recess, and won't take it up until February 22. Throughout this week 1Sky organizers and volunteers will be out in force talking face-to-face with their representatives and senators about protecting the Clean Air Act and passing a comprehensive climate and energy bill this year.

Lisa Murkowski’s (R-AK) efforts to gut the Clean Air Act!
