Rep. Lois Capps: Bill Would Combat Global Warming Threat

Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara, on Thursday reintroduced legislation to help coastal communities combat the treat of global warming. The Coastal State Climate Change Planning Act would establish a new grant program under the Coastal Zone Management Act to encourage coastal states to modify their current coastal management programs to plan for the impacts of global warming, such as sea level rise. Joining Capps in co-sponsoring the legislation were Reps. Sam Farr and Doris Matsui, D-Calif., and Guam delegate Madeleine Z. Bordallo.

“Global warming is a growing threat that will seriously challenge the entire planet, and Ground Zero for it effects our coastal states,” Capps said in a statement. “This legislation will provide coastal states with the financial resources they need to develop plans to prepare for the unique set of challenges they are facing because of global warming. I’ll be working to ensure this bill moves through the committee process as soon as possible.”

— Emily Kryder is communications director for Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
