Will–Thanks for your long-term, considerable support for clean energy and work to respond to climate change. In your capacity as a State Senator, are there steps that you can take –and that you plan (or hope) to take– in support of the EPA’s recent proposed rule to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from existing power plants under section 111(d) of the federal Clean Air Act? The EPA’s rule seems to kick a lot of responsibility to the States. Of anyone In MA, it would be GREAT to see you out-front in support of the EPA’s efforts. Thanks.
I’ve cosponsored legislation to eliminate coal plants and the natural gas market is helping us get to that goal. There may be more we can do under this rubric. I definitely need your help on this Roger — you are much more expert than I in energy regulation! Let’s talk and develop some ideas.
