CT Coalition for Climate Action Mid-Session Update – Wednesday, Mar. 29 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. – Webinar

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! Click here to register.

A Plan for Reducing Stormwater Pollution: What Norwalk Can Do to Help Keep its Rivers and the Harbor Clean – Wednesday, Mar. 29 at 6:30 p.m. – Norwalk Library, CT

Please join Save the Sound representative Bill Lucey, the Long Island Soundkeeper, at the Norwalk Library on Wednesday, March 29 at 6:30 p.m. Stormwater pollution is the #1 threat to water quality in Connecticut, and with increasing storm frequency and intensity, the challenges and costs of managing stormwater continues to grow. Towns near the water, like Norwalk, are particularly vulnerable. Being proactive in addressing these impending threats will positively manage potentially skyrocketing costs and increase resilience to pollution and flooding.  

Bill Lucey, a Connecticut native, has been fighting for fish and clean water for decades. He is a registered lobbyist who speaks for the Sound in Hartford, and in 2021, successfully fought for a climate change and adaptation bill featuring stormwater authority enabling legislation. He also helped pass: an aggressive Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) bill, striped bass conservation, tax relief for the aquaculture industry, and amended sewage right-to-know legislation so the public can get electronic notification when there’s a sewer overflow event in their community. Bill will provide insight on how Stormwater Utilities could spread out your long-term costs to mitigate pollution in the Norwalk River Watershed.  Click here to learn more.
