House Democrats released a sprawling and aggressive climate change plan on Tuesday aimed at curbing U.S. greenhouse gases and protecting vulnerable communities — setting up a clash with Republicans and the Trump administration on the issue ahead of the fall election.

The 547-page report, the most ambitious Democratic climate plan to date, calls for setting a price on carbon dioxide pollution, eliminating pollution from cars by 2035 and from power plants by 2040 and achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. It also aims to make environmental justice a focus and says marginalized communities that often suffer the worst effects of climate change and pollution must get “the tangible benefits” of climate action.
