The 2017 Mass. legislative session is underway. 

State Sen. Mike Barrett, has just re-filed his path-breaking carbon pricing legislation

 SD.1021, “An Act Combating Climate Change.”  

 

Carbon pricing is the single most effective step a state can take to fight global warming Sen. Barrett's office has done rigorous economic modeling and reports that revenue-neutral carbon pricing incentivizes residents and businesses to reduce fossil fuel consumption even as its effect on Massachusetts is job-positive.

 

... Carbon pricing is formidably effective in fighting climate change but unavoidably regressive, as it’s based on a household’s fossil fuel consumption rather than its income.  The best way to cure this regressivity is to rebate the money entirely, as Sen. Barrett's bill does. https://malegislature.gov/Bills/190/SD1021
