Last week, the MA House of Representatives released its Fiscal Year 2021 budget proposal. We’re pleased to share that it dramatically increases our Green Budget Coalition’s priority line-items. Areas of significant growth include the Department of Conservation and Recreation, Department of Environmental Protection, and Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program. These allocations would allow our state agencies to better safeguard our natural resources, protect public health, and work toward our essential climate targets.
The past several months have highlighted how vital our outdoor parks and open space are to our community and people. We are grateful to see the House investing in these critical resources.
Thank Your State Representative for funding the environment.
