ACTION ALERT! (updated 8/2017)

Push back against fossil fuel interests nationally by supporting climate action on the state level! We will be updating you regularly on the bills needing testimony.

This is a CRUCIAL time for Massachusetts legislation.

There are TWO IMPORTANT BILLS that CAN endorses that need action now. They will be heard in the Telecommunications, Energy and Utilities Committee on September 19.

We need your help in supporting those bills.

Please take these three important steps:

1. FIND OUT WHO YOUR LEGISLATORS ARE AND THEIR CONTACT INFORMATION HERE. Simply enter your address and zip code.

2. SUBMIT TESTIMONY TO THE RELEVANT COMMITTEE CHAIRS ON TWO CAN PRIORITY BILLS. Copy, paste and customize the letters linked below and send them to the emails or addresses listed on the letters. Send a copy to your legislators and to info@climateactionnowma.org.

To submit testimony in support of H.3395/S.1849, the 100% Renewable MA Bill, click here. The hearing on the bill will be held on September 19.

To submit testimony in support of raising the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) such that MA reaches 100% renewable electricity by 2035, click here. The hearing regarding raising the RPS, and possibly other of our energy policy related bills, will also be on September 19.

We will be looking to pack the hearing room at the State House on September 19.
 

3. MAKE A PHONE CALL TO FOLLOW UP ON YOUR LETTERS OR EMAILS.

BONUS: Amplify! Personally ask a friend in another part of the state to do this. Forward this page to them. State action on climate is all-important now.
Thank you for TAKING ACTION! Together, we are unstoppable.
