Energize R.I. Act of 2017 Press Conference

  • Rhode Island State House, Governor’s State Room 82 Smith Street Providence, RI, 02903 United States (map)

About: The event is being organized by the EnergizeRI Coalition to support Sen. Jeanine Calkin, D-Warwick, and Rep. Aaron Regunberg, D-Providence, as they introduce the Energize Rhode Island: Clean Energy Investment and Carbon Pricing Act of 2017. The bill would place a fee on carbon pollution from fossil fuels and return some of the proceeds to Rhode Island residents and businesses, and help fund renewable-energy programs that specifically benefit low-income residents and small businesses. Legislators from Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut, where state carbon pricing bills will also be introduced, will be in attendance.
