MONDAY — SEPTEMBER 9, 2019 — WILLIAMSBURG, MA
Jen Benson talk
Rep. Jen Benson discusses climate bills

Franklin First District’s state representative, Natalie Blais, has invited Representative Jen Benson to Williamsburg to talk about two climate bills that Rep. Benson has sponsored, a carbon pricing and rebate bill, H.2810, and H.2808, for electric grid modernization.

The carbon pricing bill, H.2810, imposes a fee on the companies  that sell or burn fossil fuels, based on the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions released when the fuels are  burned. According to a recent report by ClimateXChange on the H.2810’s financial impact, “52.5 percent of the revenue raised by the state government from the fees will be used to provide rebates to households, with the funds shifted toward low and moderate-income residents. For low and moderate-income households, the rebates exceed the expected  costs of the program, leading to net positive monetary benefits.” To read more on how the bill will impact residents of differing incomes, check out this excellent report: https://climate-xchange.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Impacts-of-Carbon-Pollution-Pricing-on-Massachusetts-Households-at-Different-Income-Levels-Website.pdf.
