Carbon Pricing Demystified: How Proposed Legislation Can Happen Here
Michael Green, Executive Director of the Climate Action Business Association will give an overview of proposed carbon pricing legislation in Massachusetts.
Excerpted from the State House News Service:
More than a third of state lawmakers have signed onto legislation that would put a price on carbon emissions as a way to address global warming, a sign of growing support on Beacon Hill for a policy that Gov. Charlie Baker has seemed cool to in the past. Sixty-two lawmakers signed onto Senator Barrett's bill (SD 1021), which is similar to the one he proposed last session. The co-sponsors comprise 35 percent of the 40-member Senate, and 40 percent of the 160-member House.
