February and March were busy months for our chapter, featuring meetings with the Columbia-Montour Chamber of Commerce, the Montour Area Recreation Commission, several student groups on campus, and staffers from Rep. Meuser’s office. After a productive meeting with the Bloomsburg Ministerium, we received an endorsement signed by representatives from six local congregations, demonstrating that local religious bodies are on board for carbon pricing. The full statement is available here.
In January we secured our first two endorsements of the new year! On January 14 we received a statement of support from the Economics Department at Bloomsburg University, and on January 25 the Bloomsburg Town Council voted 6-0 to adopt our resolution in support of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. Both documents are filed on our Endorsements page, where we hope to add as many others as possible until Congress passes an effective carbon pricing bill. Stay tuned!
