Join Us for Carbon Pricing Lobby Day Tuesday, June 13

If we’re going to pass a price on carbon pollution in Massachusetts, we need to show widespread support for these bills to our legislators.

Meet face-to-face with your legislators at Carbon Pricing Lobby Day to tell them that now is the time to act on climate change, and carbon pricing bills H1726 and S1821 are crucial pieces of legislation. The League is a big supporter of Carbon Pricing legislation throughout the country.

Let’s fill the State House halls with carbon pricing supporters!

  • 10am to noon: Meetings with Senators
  • Noon to 1pm: Lunch
  • 1pm to 3pm: Meetings with Representatives
