Leadership: Since his special election to the Senate in 2013, Senator Booker has cemented his reputation as an environmental leader. He became a member of the Senate Climate Action Task Force and, in March 2014, joined 30 of his Senate colleagues in an overnight Senate session featuring floor speeches pushing for action on climate change. He is a member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, and has become ranking member of its subcommittee on Oceans, Atmosphere, Fisheries, and Coast Guard. Coupled with his being a member of the Committee on Environment and Public Works, Booker is well positioned to protect our environment and expand our clean energy industries. He has already introduced legislation that would force corporate polluters to pay for the clean-up of contaminated Superfund sites, and voted in favor of clean energy tax credits and energy efficiency legislation.

Senator Booker sponsored:

  • S. 2400 (Superfund Polluter Pays Restoration Act of 2015)
  • S. 2981 (Innovation in Surface Transportation Act of 2014)

Senator Booker cosponsored:

  • S. 1918 (Conserving Ecosystems by Ceasing the Importation of Large (CECIL) Animal Trophies Act)
  • S. 921 (Delaware River Basin Conservation Act of 2015)
  • S. 371 (A bill to remove a limitation on a prohibition relating to permits for discharges incidental to normal operation of vessels)
  • S. 2911 (Super Pollutants Act of 2014)
