House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), GOP Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY), and House Select Committee on Climate GOP Leader Garret Graves (R-La.) have released a six-point proposal to address climate change and the U.S. energy crisis, according to ClearPath Action, the advocacy arm of the non-profit organization ClearPath.

The Republican Energy, Climate, and Conservation (ECC) Task Force was also involved in crafting the proposal.

"Conservatives have real solutions to solve the climate challenge and make energy more affordable," said ClearPath Action CEO Rich Powell in a statement about the GOP proposal.

He called it a “comprehensive plan that works.”

“It reduces carbon emissions, creates jobs, eliminates dependence on foreign adversaries resources, and will be well-received in every single Congressional district in America according to our research."

According to ClearPath Action, the proposal includes building “resilient communities” as well as unlocking American energy resources and innovation. It also covers ways to beat China and Russia in the energy space and “conservation with a purpose.”

The full plan was not immediately available. McCarthy’s office was not available for comment before press time.

According to ClearPath Action, its organization advocates for “more clean energy innovation, modernized permitting and regulatory reform, America's global competitiveness for manufacturing, and unlocking more American resources.”
