Representative Mike Yantachka and VCV’s Lauren Hierl give a pre-Town Meeting Day update on a miscellaneous energy bill, changes to Efficiency Vermont’s program, and the carbon pricing study effort.
CLICK HERE to urge your representatives to support funding an impartial study of carbon pricing!
The House Committee of Natural Resources, Fish, and Wildlife just voted to advance legislation that would commission a non-partisan, economic analysis of different carbon pricing options facing Vermont, including the ESSEX Plan.
This is a huge victory towards putting a price on carbon pollution here in Vermont, and it’s imperative that we keep up this momentum!
When it comes to climate action, there’s not a moment to waste.
An independent study can put the lies of the fossil fuel industry to rest and give our officials the information they need to move forward with carbon pricing and the ESSEX Plan.
We have to continue the momentum in the entire Vermont House.
