Briefing from Senator Pacheco

The Massachusetts Senate Committee on Global Warming and Climate Change (I think we’re the only state that has one, by the way) released its omnibus bill, called “An Act to promote a clean energy future,” on Monday.

Today, as part of the Climate Reality Project Boston chapter, I received a briefing from Senator Marc Pacheco on some of the bill’s details. There’s a lot to like about the bill, from an increase in the renewable portfolio standard to reform of the Department of Public Utilities to expanding market-based mechanisms to transportation, industrial and residential energy.

There’s a solid chance this will be voted up by the Massachusetts Senate. The House is another matter.
