On Tuesday, June 4, 2019 MBLLC member Representative Liz Miranda spoke in support of her Environmental Justice bill, H761, which she filed with Representative Michelle DuBois. In summary, the bill would ensure that all MA communities gain equal protection from pollutants and environmental injustices.
The legislation would strengthen protections from pollution by modifying MGL Ch 21, ensure access to government, facilitate the creation of supplemental environmental projects, and prevent harm.
Those who are interested in the bill can track it here and can support it by contacting the Joint Committee on Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture linked here.
MBLLC log posts are curated by the Caucus Executive Director.
