On Tuesday, June 20th from 1:00 to 5:00 pm, the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities, and Energy (TUE) will hold a hearing at the Massachusetts State House to consider the two pending bills that would put fees on carbon pollution, S.1821 and H.1726. The bills cannot move forward until they are voted favorably out of the TUE committee, so a demonstration of strong support for the legislation is required. An “all-star lineup” of experts will testify on behalf of the bills.
Climate experts agree that taking effective climate action requires putting a price on carbon. As federal regulations become increasingly weak, Massachusetts must take climate responsibility. Join us on Tuesday in the State House Gardner Auditorium for the hearing of carbon pricing bills S.1821 and H.1726.
If you are not able to attend the hearing, you can still contact your legislators, preferably by phone. Let them know you are a constituent in their district and that you want them to support putting a price on carbon. You can find your legislators’ names and contact information here.
