Montpelier, Vt. — This afternoon, Lt. Governor Molly Gray released the following statement on the initial Vermont Climate Action Plan:
“Today, I want to take a moment to recognize and thank all the Vermonters who contributed hours of their time as well as their expertise serving on the Climate Council.
We're lucky to have so many Vermonters from all corners of our state, from different backgrounds and experiences, stepping up to lead and contributing to a plan for Vermont's future.
The Climate Council’s recommendations backed by potential federal funding and climate initiatives in the Build Back Better bill could give our state a historic chance to make a down payment on a cheaper, more resilient, and independent energy future for every Vermonter.
The Climate Council’s plan is a necessary start but there is lots of work still to be done and we all will have a role to play.”
