Senate Bill 674/House Bill 1207 makes several changes to the Commission on Environmental Justice and Sustainable Communities (CEJSC). Its new composition will include one representative of local government, designated by MML.
Senate Bill 414, the Climate Change Solutions Now Act of 2021, collapsed in the final hours of Session after an effort to reconcile competing versions failed. MML supported this bill as one of our strategic initiatives this year, but its final iteration would have been prohibitively expensive for local governments. Though we are disappointed a workable version of this important legislation failed to pass this year, we look forward to working with legislators on next year's draft.
