The House 158-0, approved a $7.3 million consolidated amendment that funds energy, environmental affairs and housing programs.
“We are on the front lines of the climate crisis and if we are to minimize irreversible impacts, we must make unparalleled changes,” said State Representative Jeffrey N. Roy (D-Franklin), House Chair of the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities, and Energy. “The House budget and adopted energy and environmental amendment together commit 1.25 percent of the state’s total budget to implement the policies and strategies stemming from robust climate bills passed over the past few sessions.”
(A “Yes” vote is for the consolidated amendment.)
