CT Coalition for Climate Action Mid-Session Update
Connecticut is falling behind in meeting its climate pollution reduction obligations. Environmental advocates, health experts, labor and municipal representatives, and more have formed the CT Coalition for Climate Action and are advocating for strengthening the state’s climate law, the Global Warming Solutions Act (GWSA), to reflect the urgency of the climate crisis.

The Connecticut General Assembly has completed the public hearing stage of the 2023 legislative session, having heard dozens of proposals including SB 1145 An Act Concerning the Establishment of Sector Specific Subtargets for Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reductions and HB 6397 An Act Concerning Zero Carbon Emissions, bills that would help achieve our goals and put Connecticut on the path to meeting its commitments.

Join the CT Coalition for Climate Action on March 29 from 6 to 7:00 p.m. as we share the latest on where key climate legislation stands in the 2023 session and how to get critical accountability measures over the finish line!

With expert panelists:
• State Representative Christine Palm, vice chair of the Environment Committee – on legislating for climate action, and the outlook through June
• Charles Rothenberger, climate & energy attorney at Save the Sound – on climate accountability, tools for agencies to reduce emissions, and clean transportation
• Samantha Dynowski, state director at Sierra Club Connecticut Chapter – on healthy homes and energy efficiency
• Julianna Larue, climate policy & outreach coordinator at the CT League of Conservation Voters – on environmental justice and action steps you can take now
