Conservative Climate Caucus Announces Leadership for 118th Congress, Adds First Vice-Chair

Washington, D.C. — Today, the Conservative Climate Caucus announced its leadership for the 118th Congress. Representative John Curtis (UT-03) will continue to serve as Chair of the Caucus, which was formed in June 2021. The Caucus is also pleased to welcome Representative Mariannette Miller-Meeks as its first Vice-Chair.


"I am excited to welcome Congresswoman Miller-Meeks to the leadership of the Caucus," said Chairman Curtis. "Her expertise and perspective will be valuable as we continue to educate House Republicans on climate and energy issues. Mariannette has a near perfect attendance at Caucus briefings and on sponsored trips, showing a clear interest and willingness to engage on these important issues and find the right answers. With a new Congress and new leadership in the House, Republicans are committed to delivering solutions to the challenges of climate change."


“I’m thrilled to join Chairman Curtis as Vice Chair of the Conservative Climate Caucus,” said Representative Miller-Meeks. “Iowa is leading the nation in the clean energy space, and I look forward to bringing that perspective to the table as we continue to promote sensible renewable energy solutions.”


The Conservative Climate Caucus is dedicated to educating House Republicans on climate and energy issues, through briefings and trips. The Caucus recognizes that climate change is a global issue and that decades of global industrialization have contributed to this change. Private sector innovation, American resources, and R&D investment have also resulted in lower emissions and more affordable energy, making the United States a global leader in reducing emissions.


The Caucus believes that practical solutions to climate change can be found through innovation embraced by the free market and that Americans, and the rest of the world, want access to cheaper, reliable, and cleaner energy. The Caucus also believes that fossil fuels can and should be a major part of the global solution to reducing emissions, and that the goal is to reduce emissions, not reduce energy choices.
