You can make a difference by letting your state representative and senator know that you support The Future of Clean Heat bill (S.2105/H.3203), one of ECA Mass’ priority bills. When they hear from even five constituents with a personal message, they take notice.
Why this bill? It’s critical that we put in place incentives to move buildings off fossil fuels for heating and onto cleaner electric heat pumps. This bill would start that process, and it is slated for hearings before the Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy (TUE) Committee Wednesday and Thursday (7/12-7/13) this week.
These links offer more information about the bill:
We are offering step by step guidance for creating messages that are likely to be read and have an impact as well as a simple template to make it easy to craft and send your message. We recommend that you include a link to the ECA Mass testimony as included in the template to engage legislators in some serious consideration of the bill.
