Weekly Action Update and notes from last night's Community Leaders' Meeting


Vanessa Rule

We had a good Community Leaders' meeting last night with the latest on the bills we are following and a robust discussion about Clean Heat Standards. You can read notes here. There was general agreement from participants that we do not want to see biofuels or RNG (at the very least from out of state), in this bill. The Campaign Team will be considering all the input to determine what 350VT's position is on this bill moving forward, later tonight and I will communicate back.

In the meantime, here is the weekly update that lays out where the legislation we're following is and what actions we need to take this week.

In short, we need to call for

  • EJ bill funding for the Advisory Committee

  • Funding for Micro Transition and Electric School Buses in the Transportation

  • Express support H. 273 Land Access Bill

Details are in the update document. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions.

We're excited that we are getting the word out there! Here are ways we're gotten our voices out in the public sphere this week:
