INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A proposal focusing on climate change is headed to the full City-County Council for consideration.

The Rules and Public Policy Committee voted in favor of the plan from District 7 Councillor John Barth Thursday night. The plan calls for a commission to study how the city can lessen the effects of climate change.

People from both sides spoke out during the public meeting. After comments were heard, the proposal was advanced by the committee.

“Part of our process in going through this commission will be making recommendations to the council for how we should prioritize different actions we can take to protect the city from the effects of climate change,” said Barth.

The full City-County Council will consider the measure on March 16.
