The State Legislature may be out of session at the moment; but like many of his colleagues, Senator Dave Woodsome (R-York) is busy with important work that will help guide the next legislative session when it begins in January.
Senator Woodsome has been appointed to the Maine Climate Council, a new group created to advise the Governor and Legislature on ways to mitigate the causes of, prepare for, and adapt to the consequences of climate change.
The council was established by a bill sponsored by Senator Woodsome in the last legislative session. It will examine all of the issues related to climate change policy in Maine and suggest new ideas and changes to the legislature in time for their next session in January.
Sen. Woodsome: “I am very happy to know that our region will have a voice in future decisions relating to such an important subject and I look forward to exploring the issues, facts, and policies involved.”
