2010 March 15: MA: March 17 deadline to Ask your state legislators to support House Bill 4458 for clean air (biomass emission regulations) and water

Last week I received an email from Trout Unlimited asking MA residents to contact your local state rep and senator in support of an upcoming MA House Bill 4458. The summary of the bill is as follows:

This proposed law would require waste-to-energy and biomass renewable energy sources relying on combustion or pyrolization (decomposition caused by heat) to emit no more than 250 pounds of carbon dioxide per megawatt hour in order to be considered “renewable energy generating sources,” “Class I renewable energy generating sources,” “Class II renewable energy generating sources,” “alternative energy developments,” or “alternative energy properties” under state laws concerning renewable and alternative energy programs.

I would encourage to contact our Westford legislators Senator Steven C. Panagiotakos and Representative James Arciero and ask for their support of this bill before March 17th.

Below is the full email text received from Trout Unlimited.

Please read. We only have 12 days to act on this – March 17th is the deadline.
