Meeting Agenda
The principal topics at this meeting will be: 
  • State legislative action on climate: In January the state Senate and House of Representatives passed the Next Generation Roadmap Climate Bill, only to see it vetoed by Governor Baker. The legislature proceeded to vote again and pass the same bill. The Governor sent it back with amendments. Read about it and take action here. 
    • In a related development, the coalition Mass Power Forward has scheduled a Lobby Day (via Zoom) for March 4th. For the new legislative session, Mass Power Forward will be advocating for 3 main groups of bills: the Environmental Justice Table's priorities; the MA Renews Alliance work to rapidly retrofit homes to be affordable, efficient, electric and climate healing; and continuing our work from last session to get Massachusetts to 100% renewable energy. Information and registration here.
  • 350 Mass 2021-22 Campaign: Our priorities will include promoting energy-efficient housing and transportation. We will discuss these projects and roles for our Node within this region of the state.
As always, we'll touch on other developments in climate and energy news, and we'll identify ways that we can contribute as a Node and individually. 
Thanks for your participation and support.
