Those bills have been "refreshed" for a second round this legislative session, strengthened by a commitment to environmental justice and against racism.
Leaders of MPF note that many of our communities, especially those with a majority of people of color and low incomes, have had to bear the brunt of decades of fossil fuel pollution and are most at risk from climate change. MPF is urging state legislators to call for energy policy that leads by example to stop fossil fuel subsidies, support local renewable energy resources, keep energy dollars in our communities, create good green jobs, and protect our Commonwealth from climate change and life-threatening pollution.
Messaging MPF's legislative priorities, especially to members of the House, calls for bold, decisive action on:
- Environmental Justice -- including communities impacted by climate change and fossil fuel pollution as participants in crafting new, equitable policy
- 100% Renewable Energy -- set an ambitious goal to equitably reach 100% renewable electricity by 2035 and 100% renewable energy for heating and transportation by 2045
- Equitable Investments and Green Infrastructure -- use mechanisms such as equitable carbon pricing or TCI (Transportation Climate Initiative) to invest today to create the future we want
