Letter from Representative Joan Meschino
Dear 2050 Roadmap Coalition Members,
I am sure by now you have all seen that the Governor vetoed The Next Generation Roadmap legislation. Please do not feel discouraged. The Speaker declared his intention to refile the bill, and he will.
The climate change work will be transformative. I hope that each and every one of you feels true pride in the tremendous amount of work that you have done to get us to this moment. You helped educate, you rallied people, and you helped build consensus for strategies for action. That opened the door for the Legislature to advance The 2050 Roadmap bill. More importantly, the pending bill pushed the Administration towards adopting net-zero carbon emissions, the back cast analysis, the multiple pathways, and the people-centric lens. That work is happening now.
We do need to finish the legislation to ensure that this is all codified into Massachusetts law. We are very close. Send your thank-you notes to the Speaker and Senate President for their leadership. Stay the course!
I am very much looking forward to looking ahead to this coming session and all the exciting work ahead of us!
Rep. Joan Meschino
