The Climate Bank (same as green bank) bill sponsored by Senator Paul Mark and Representative Joan Meschino (S.675/H.3774) is a priority bill for Climate Action Now and the hearing is this Tuesday, October 24th. We encourage everyone to take action by sending an email message or calling the committee. 

Address your e-mail message to: jointcmte-financialservices@malegislature.gov with a copy to your state Senator and state Representative. 

You can use the sample statement below. We encourage you to share why this bill is important to you in your own words.

Dear Senator Feeney and Representative Murphy: Massachusetts needs long term funding to support work on climate change.  A climate bank, as proposed in S.675/H.3774, An Act Creating a Climate Bank in Massachusetts, is an innovative financing mechanism, that will provide funding and technical support for “climate and clean energy innovations,” by attracting private capital to fund projects that help reduce geenhouse gas emissions.  Climate banks adapt their focus areas over time as they monitor the market and identify areas where more funding is needed.

Please support a favorable vote on S.675/H.3774.  

Thank you,
