On January 4th, the Massachusetts Legislature passed An Act Creating a Next-Generation Roadmap for Massachusetts Climate Policy with overwhelming bipartisan support. The Governor has until midnight on Thursday, January 14th to sign the bill into law, or the legislature will have to start from scratch in the new session.

The result of months of negotiations between the House and Senate, this bill sets the Massachusetts' 2050 emissions limit to the new global standard – net zero – and defines a transparent process for achieving them. It also codifies critical environmental justice language and makes natural and working lands part of our climate strategy. Read a full summary of the bill here.
