LWVMA coalition partners, Mass Power Forward and The Campaign for a Clean Energy Future (carbon pricing) are working hard to push important energy and environmental justice (EJ) bills forward for a vote this session. A State House Lobby Day is being planned for Thursday May 10th from 12:00-4:00PM. Meetings with legislators are being scheduled and all materials will be available to those participating. Click here to register.
What do we want? The League is advocating for passage of S.2302: An Act to promote a clean energy future, also referred to as the “Omnibus Bill”, submitted by Senator Pacheco.
Why is this bill so important? S.2302 contains virtually all the critical elements of individual energy and EJ bills submitted this session and supported by the League and our partners. We are pushing for passage of the entire bill, with special emphasis on:
· carbon pricing language (as described in the attachment)
· a strong plan for implementation of the Global Warming Solutions Act (referred to as the “roadmap”).
The task at hand is to mobilize membership to attend the State House Lobby Day on May 10th. Please register using the link above to participate on May 10th if you can and do all you can to spread the word to encourage others to join you.
