Climate Change Council- Senate Climate Bill

General Bill Info

Legislative Topic: 
Climate
Bill Year: 
2014
Brief Bill Description: 

This is the Senate's bill to comprehensively address climate change. The strategy of this bill is essentially to codify the Executive Climate Change Council, which would be aided by the input of an advisory council whose members would be appointed by the Executive Council members themselves (2 for each). The mitigation targets in this bill are much weaker than the Resilient RI Act targets in the near term but do call for an 80% reduction by 2050.
