October Monthly Meeting & Actions W/ Dr. Ray Ward, Utah State Representative

Average Rating:


Each month, Citizens’ Climate Lobby supporters gather locally for a monthly meeting where we educate ourselves by listening to a guest speaker. Go to your local chapter's page to find out more about your chapter's plans for listening in. October's Monthly Meeting took place on Saturday, Oct. 9th and featured a conversation with Dr. Ray Ward, Utah State Representative.

9e3a3f79a4d8ebb761985974a052fcc4-huge-snIs carbon fee and dividend really the policy that can bridge the divide between Republicans and Democrats? On this month's call we'll talk to Dr. Ray Ward, a Republican state representative in Utah, about why he likes the policy. When he's not working in the legislature, Ward is a family physician in Bountiful, Utah. Earlier this year, he signed on to an op-ed in the Deseret News with two dozen other Utah Republicans endorsing carbon fee and dividend.
