Launa Zimmaro, LWVMA's Specialist for environmental legislation, has prepared talking points to help guide your comments. If you have any questions contact her.

Sen. Patrick O'Connor of Weymouth, a speaker at the recent LWVMA Convention and the one Republican on the committee said, "The arguments that have been surrounding global warming, climate change and sea level rise are over. That has been determined, and now it's time to continue the conversation of what we need to do collectively - Republicans, Democrats, independents, moderates, conservatives and liberals - to combat this great threat to our entire coastal communities as well as the entire commonwealth of Massachusetts."
