Now is the time for action,
and we're still waiting.
Fight to preserve public lands.
In Massachusetts, our state Constitution gives us the right to a clean environment. But our treasured open spaces are not as protected as we may think.
Here at ELM, we understand the importance of protecting open space and so, along with many of our friends and allies, we have spent years advocating for the passage of the Public Lands Preservation Act (S. 2181).
This is a critical time for PLPA. We need to put pressure on the Senate to provide the bill with a favorable report. This legislation would protect our parkland by assuring that comparable land be found to replace any protected land that is lost. It will also increase the transparency and efficiency of the process.
Call your Senator and ask them to urge Chairwoman Spilka and Vice Chair DiDomenico to promptly provide a favorable report for the PLPA.
