Environment Massachusetts asks legislators to adopt key policies for clean energy, energy efficiency

For Immediate Release

Environment Massachusetts sent a letter to legislative leaders today asking that any climate bill passed this session include key policies to reduce energy consumption and increase the percentage of electricity coming from renewable resources like solar and wind.

Six legislators — Rep. Tom Golden, Rep. Patricia Haddad, Rep. Bradley Jones, Sen. Michael Barrett, Sen. Cynthia Creem, and Sen. Patrick O'Connor — have been appointed to a conference committee to resolve differences between the House and Senate versions of climate legislation. The deadline for the committee to agree on a bill is January 5, the end of the current legislative session.
