Rep. Driscoll to Lead on Carbon Pricing Legislation

December 20, 2019

A statement from State Representative Bill Driscoll, Jr.

 

MILTON, DEC. 20 – I’m sad to see my friend and colleague Jen Benson leave the Legislature, but I know she’s going to do amazing things as the president of the Alliance for Business Leadership.

When Jen filed an ambitious, thoughtful carbon pricing bill in the House this session, I enthusiastically signed on as a cosponsor. Now, she has asked me to take over as the lead advocate for carbon pricing in the House, and I proudly accept.

 

Climate change threatens the planet and our community, and we need bold solutions to address it. Carbon pricing is a proven way to reduce carbon emissions by incentivizing energy efficiency and renewable energy.

An Act to Promote Green Infrastructure & Reduce Carbon Emissions will cut emissions and provide funding for renewable energy, transportation, and climate change resiliency projects, while protecting low-and-moderate income households and small businesses.

 

I’m looking forward to building on the momentum Jen and the passionate advocates of the Campaign for a Clean Energy Future have built behind the carbon pricing movement, and I invite you to read more about the bill by accessing this link.
