Statement on the Legislature’s Passage of the Climate Bill
The Environmental League of Massachusetts applauds the Legislature for their commitment to return a strong climate bill to the Governor’s desk with an urgency that matches the crisis we face. The recent amendments and refinements strengthened the legislation, including the Governor’s provision to add cumulative impacts to environmental justice reviews. We commend the Legislature for maintaining the substantive core of the bill, particularly the emissions limits. This legislation will set the Commonwealth on a course for a cleaner, more equitable, and more prosperous future.
