With the Democrats in the House of Representatives, it was Wednesday for the first time in eight years hearing on climate change and on arms control.
– End of climate denial. End the evasions. The Democrats in the House of Representatives take responsibility, wrote the Natural Resources Committee, led by Democrat Raúl Grijalva, on Twitter prior to the hearing, and continued:
– It’s about to act for the climate.
At the same time as the hearing on climate change took place, there was also a hearing on violence, which also happens for the first time in eight years.
The Democrats secured a majority in the House of Representatives at the November election. Now that Congress has come together, it is the first time since 2011 that the Democrats are controlling the First Chamber. The Republicans still have the majority in the Senate.
