Senator Chuck Schumer, D-NY

Senator Schumer is the current Senate majority leader, and the senior United States senator from New York, a seat he has held since 1999. Schumer chaired the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee from 2005 to 2009, served as Vice Chair of the Democratic Caucus in the Senate from 2007 to 2017 and chaired the Senate Democratic Policy Committee from 2011 to 2017. During his time in the Senate, Schumer has long supported clean energy and the jobs, economic and climate benefits that come with it. Recently, he unveiled a “Clean Transit for America Plan” as a companion to his “Clean Cars for America” proposal, the both of which would decarbonize key parts of the American transportation sector, invest in good paying union jobs, and promote manufacturing here at home.
