Last Thursday evening, just hours before the midnight deadline, Governor Baker vetoed An Act Creating a Next-Generation Roadmap for Massachusetts Climate Policy. We are disappointed that Governor Baker vetoed this path-breaking climate bill that included a suite of strong policies to address climate change along with needed environmental justice protections.
But the fight is not over! We are grateful to the thousands of you who contacted Governor Baker and urged him to sign the bill. We are now asking you to take action again.
Speaker Mariano and Senate President Spilka committed to promptly sending the bill back to the Governor’s desk and it has been refiled in its entirety. Send a message to your state legislators thanking them for their commitment to this bill and reassuring them that getting this bill signed into law is still important to their constituents.
