TY for having me, @Middlesex3. While I'm disappointed in Gov. Baker’s veto of the climate bill, our discussion reminded us all to look at the positive side. We are energized by the battle to get this bill into law. We're more motivated than ever. We're getting right back to work.
Respectfully, we believe Governor Baker’s concerns about the impact of the bill on construction costs do not square with the facts.
Strong statement from @BarrettSenate who led the negotiations: "Baker is not the first politician in the world to have responded to climate change by procrastinating ... We're more motivated than ever. And we're getting right back to work."
Thank you to all the people who called, wrote, pushed for the #NextGenerationRoadmap bill -- this fight is not over -- there is too much at stake. Thank you @tomtipagolden @BarrettSenate for your leadership.
