Greenhouse Gas Reduction Act Passes PA House

Yesterday, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed House Bill 110, the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Act, legislation that would create a global warming strategy in Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania alone contributes one percent of the heat-trapping pollution that causes global warming, more than 105 developing nations combined. We are also third worst in the nation, behind only California and Texas, for production of greenhouse gases.

The bill still needs to pass the Pennsylvania Senate.

Please take a moment to thank (or chide!) your state representative. You can use Penn Future's Action Center to send a quick message or to get the contact information you need to make a quick phone call.
