Environment & Climate Change

It’s a fact: the climate is changing and we need to act. That’s why in Congress Ruben has made environmental issues one of his top priorities. With Arizona getting hotter and drier with each passing year, Ruben is leading efforts to combat excess urban heat and find innovative solutions to ensure our state has enough water for all Arizonans.

Ruben is also a leader in preserving Arizona’s public lands. The uniqueness of our state is its natural beauty, and we need to make sure generations to come can enjoy our public lands for generations to come. That’s why he’s worked to ensure that diverse communities can participate in our public lands, whether through championing partnerships with Tribal governments or working to commemorate César Chávez in the form of a National Historic Park in Phoenix.
