Carbon Pricing Lobby Day

The Senate is preparing to move on carbon pricing. This May, Senator Rosenberg will be bringing together his membership to decide how carbon pricing should move forward this session. Our senators need to know that their constituents support the policy and want them to take action. That’s why your presence on May 11th is so important. So if we want carbon pricing to move this year, we need to ensure that our senators not only hear our voices and read our words, but also see our faces.

That’s why the MA Campaign for a Clean Energy Future Coalition will be leading a lobby day

When: Wednesday, May 11th, 10 a.m.
Where: Massachusetts State House exact location TBD
