At the State House: Mothers and Mass Power Forward!

Mothers Out Front Massachusetts teams were out in force, joining allies and each other, for hearings at the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy.

Committee members heard testimony about the "FUTURE Act” (For Utility Transition to Using Renewable Energy), which is intended to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by reducing energy use, increasing efficiency and encouraging renewable sources of energy and other energy policies. (H.2849, S.1940)
