STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, FEB. 12, 2018...A comprehensive and complex bill written by a leading climate change activist in the Senate proposes to accelerate the state's transition to renewable energy by banning new natural gas infrastructure, setting new targets for emission reductions and using the market to curb fossil fuel consumption.

The omnibus Senate clean energy bill "is not a standalone bill that was dreamt up in the middle of the night by the Senate," said Global Warming and Climate Change Chairman Marc Pacheco, noting his committee used several bills that had moved favorably through a joint House-Senate committee.
