2019 ECA Mass Legislative Goals

We urge the Commonwealth to explore all scientifically and economically viable solutions to reduce GHG emissions to net zero by 2050. Our goals are:

  • To develop a Roadmap to reach net-zero by 2050.
  • To take immediate steps to reduce transportation and building GHG emissions.
  • To halt construction of all new fossil fuel infrastructure.

To reach these goals, we support first and foremost:

  • H 3983- The “2050 Roadmap” Bill to develop and implement a comprehensive plan for achieving our carbon emission reduction goals by 2050 efficiently, fairly, and while maintaining a thriving economy.

We also support these bills to reduce transportation and building emissions:

  • H 3008/S 2106 – TCI Bill for Modern and Sustainable Transportation
  • H 2849/S 1940 – An Act For Utilities to Transition to Renewable Energies (FUTURE)
  • H 2865- An Act to Establish a Net Zero Stretch Energy Code
  • H 2930– An Act Sparking the Modernization of State Heating Systems
  • H 2874– AN Act Relative to Increasing Net-Zero Homes in Gateway Cities

To prevent the building new fossil fuel infrastructure, we support:

  • H 2864/S 1980 – Bill Against Gas Pipeline Expansion Costs
  • H 2810- An Act to Promote Green Infrastructure and Reduce Carbon Emissions
  • S 1924 – An Act to Combat Climate Change
