"Massachusett's New State Climate Law and What it Could Mean for Our Community" with Tim Cronin, state director of ClimateXChange
Thursday, September 16, 2021 at 7 p.m.
The new law, "An Act Creating a Next Generation Roadmap for Massachusetts Climate Policy," represents the most significant update to climate policy in the Commonwealth since the landmark 2008 Global Warming Solutions Act. And with hundreds of statutory updates and changes, it tackles a lot — everything from solar panels and offshore wind to new building codes and regulatory priorities for state agencies.
