Hartford, CT - Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) applauded Governor Dannel P. Malloy's signing of Public Act 18-82: Climate Change Planning and Resiliency and Public Act 18-50: Connecticut's Energy Future.
"Connecticut continues to lead the way in the fight against climate change," said CTLCV Executive Director Lori Brown. "Even as the EPA and federal government weaken regulations and undermine the last administration's efforts to reduce emissions, Connecticut has stepped up to enforce tougher standards and invest in renewable energy. Now more than ever, we need leaders who are committed to continuing the environmental legacy Governor Malloy has forged.
"We've heard from our members on both sides of the aisle that clean energy is one of their highest priorities—and it's no surprise. Clean energy helps us lower our carbon footprint, create new jobs around green technology, and lower energy prices for businesses and homeowners. As we prepare to make our endorsements in the 2018 election, we at CTLCV are paying close attention to lawmakers who are ready to take up the fight against climate change."
CTLCV supported both of these bills throughout the 2018 legislative session.
