Climate Coalition of Somerville meeting with State Rep. Provost

We’re lucky in Somerville to be represented by individuals who stand behind progressive approaches to addressing climate change. Today, the Climate Coalition of Somerville had a 2.5 hour meeting with State Representative Denise Provost. Rep. Provost engaged in a lengthy discussion about the ins and outs of the current state legislature and the likelihood of a few specific climate-related bills passing (ahem, carbon pricing). We also went into details about the relationship between the city and a few state agencies, notably DPU, which regulates utilities, and DCR, which operates parks and open space. It was long and far-reaching dialogue and very helpful in planning.

[Edit: The meeting took place on October 16, although I’m posting this on October 17. It’s hard to post same-day after evening meetings.]
