An Act to Promote Clean Energy Jobs and to Establish the Maine Climate Council (2019)

Sponsors: David C. Woodsome

LD 1679

Governor Mills introduced bold legislation to address the threat climate change poses to Maine’s economy, environment, and to the health of Mainers. LD 1679 establishes the Maine Climate Council, charged with reducing Maine’s greenhouse gas emissions by 45% below 1990 levels by 2030 and at least 80% by 2050. The Council will develop action plans to meet these goals and ensure economic benefits for Maine people. The bill also supports the climate resiliency and adaptation of Maine’s communities. The 39-member Council will be comprised of a broad spectrum of government officials, scientists, and representatives from public health, working lands, marine industries, and other sectors impacted by climate change.
