What’s the State House Doing About Climate Change?

May 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join MetroWest Climate Solutions on May 30 at 7 p.m. for a discussion of climate-related bills that are currently under discussion at the Mass. State House.

Massachusetts has a mandate to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2050. To achieve these goals, the State Legislature must now pass legislation on multiple fronts to make this goal a reality.

Many bills that would support efforts to decarbonize and enhance resilience are making their way through the State Legislature. Legislators hope to pass a major climate and energy bill, which would address the electrification of many carbon-intensive sectors such as transportation, support the use of renewable energy, update and expand the grid, reduce the use of single-use plastics, and expand the bottle bill, among other initiatives.

Casey Bowers, Action Fund Executive Director for the Environmental League of Mass., is responsible for creating and executing the strategy to ensure the policy priorities we need pass the legislature. She will discuss some of the most significant bills before the Legislature, their potential impact, and why you should support them.

The Legislative Session ends on July 31. This is the perfect timeframe to reach out to your elected representatives to encourage their support for critical climate bills.
