Green Budget Coalition Statement on Governor Healey’s FY24 Budget
“The Green Budget Coalition applauds the Healey-Driscoll administration for its work to address our critical environmental challenges with robust, targeted spending,” said David Melly, Legislative Director for the Environmental League of Massachusetts, which leads the Green Budget Coalition. “A $105 million increase for programs that protect our air, land, and water, facilitate our clean energy transition, and prioritize environmental justice will enable state energy and environmental agencies to make significant progress toward our climate and conservation goals. In the face of increasing threats to our vulnerable natural resources, the Governor’s proposal reflects the administration’s commitment to meeting the scale and scope of the state’s needs with bold action.”
The Green Budget Coalition advocates for robust, sustainable state funding for energy and environmental affairs to meet the scope and scale of our climate, conservation, and adaptation challenges. Learn more about the Green Budget.
