Dear Greylock Together,
Last week,the legislature passed an Act Creating a Next-Generation Roadmap for Massachusetts Climate Policy, and Governor Baker has until this today to sign it.
The bill represents a tremendous, bi-partisan effort to produce the strongest bill possible to support urgent climate action.
An Act Creating a Next-Generation Roadmap for Massachusetts Climate Policy (S2995):
- reinforces the Commonwealth’s efforts to steadily and permanently reduce its greenhouse gas emissions at the scale and pace that science demands
- codifies the goal of Net Zero emissions by 2050
- codifies a comprehensive definition of environmental justice to ensure protections for overburdened communities
- maximizes our ability to fairly and efficiently achieve climate goals that will build a thriving economy that creates jobs, protects health, and benefits all of us
