Carlos Curbelo represented Florida’s 26th Congressional District from 2015 to 2019, where he consistently ranked as one of the House’s most bipartisan members for his work to build consensus on challenging policy questions. While in Congress, Curbelo led on climate policy, co-founding and co-chairing the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus. In 2017, he was honored by the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation with the New Frontier Award for his work promoting bipartisan cooperation on environmental policy. In 2018, he filed the landmark Market Choice Act, ambitious legislation that would invest nearly a trillion dollars in American infrastructure while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by pricing carbon. Curbelo is now an analyst for NBC News, MSNBC, and Telemundo, and after departing Congress launched Vocero LLC, a communications and public affairs firm.
