With less than 40 days until the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, NRCM participated in a Maine State House press conference calling for passage of federal climate and clean energy legislation. We released a statement signed by 40 organizations, representing more than 140,000 Maine residents. Lawmakers also released a letter in support of federal clean energy legislation signed by more than 100 members of the Maine Legislature. In this video, statements are made by Representative Jon Hinck (D-Portland), Senate President Libby Mitchell (D-Kennebec), NRCM Executive Director Brownie Carson, State Representative Ken Fletcher (R-Winslow), and others. At the end of the video, a group of volunteers walked to the offices of Senators Snowe and Collins to deliver 40 letters to each office, urging the senators to continue to provide strong leadership on climate legislation.
