April 10, 2021 (PROVIDENCE, RI) – Governor McKee has signed Rhode Island’s landmark new climate bill into law. The law will ensure the state reaches its goals to reduce climate-damaging emissions while protecting communities and transitioning to clean, renewable energy. Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) released the following statement in response.
“With the climate crisis at our doorstep, this law comes not a moment too soon,” said CLF attorney James Crowley. “Slashing emissions and protecting frontline communities from devastating climate impacts must be our top priorities, and this new law ensures we do just that. Now we need to get to work turning Rhode Island’s climate goals into reality.”
