We Have Your Backs on Climate Bill: Don't weaken the bill, Override ASAP
A ground-breaking climate bill, “An Act Creating a Next-Generation Roadmap for Massachusetts Climate Policy,” passed before the end of the 2019-2020 legislative session and again after the Governor vetoed it. This bill gives us tools to create a livable future for all our children.
Governor Baker has refused to sign it twice and sent it back with amendments. We want the legislature to pass the amendments that strengthen the bill, like one that gives additional protections to environmental justice communities. But we want the rest voted down.
Now is the time to support the legislative leadership, our own State Senators and Reps, and encourage them to:
- not weaken the climate bill
- quickly move to final passage of the bill
Then we will have firm ground to stand on as we start the new session with legislation that builds on the victories in the 2020 climate bill. For ongoing updates about the Climate Bill, and ideas for more actions, check here.

Mothers Out Front and our allies are proud of and grateful to our legislators for being champions of An Act Creating a Next-Generation Roadmap for Massachusetts Climate Policy. We consider this legislation the crowning achievement of the leadership of the Senate and House. Senate President Spilka, Speaker Mariano, Senator Barrett, Representative Golden, have shown courage, putting our children and grandchildren first, through their firm stand on quickly refiling and passing the bill with no changes.
We have your backs! As mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers, students, and all who are fighting for bold climate policy, we want you to continue holding fast to your principles, not to accept any amendments that weaken the bill, and quickly override other amendments. We support the speed of your actions to reach final passage of this landmark legislation and to finally finish the tremendous work you did last session. We look forward to continuing to work together in the 2021-2022 session.
