Sen. Marc R. Pacheco, D-Taunton, and Rep. Ruth B. Balser, D-Newton, have announced that more than 80 state legislators have united in support of climate solutions in 2019. The statement circulated by Pacheco and Balser, A New Year’s Resolution: Committing to the Enactment and Implementation of Bold Climate Solutions in 2019, signals support for climate action in the upcoming legislative session. Sen. Cynthia Creem, D-Newton, and Rep. Kay Khan, D-Newton, both co-signed the statement.
“With the Trump administration’s refusal to address climate issues, the job of saving our planet falls to the states,” said Balser. “Recognizing that Massachusetts has always led the way, and aware of the fact that the latest scientific data informs us that we need to step up our efforts, I am pleased to join many of my House and Senate colleagues in committing to making climate solutions a top priority for this legislative session.”
