Tuesday, June 25, 2013 -- Governor Deval Patrick today released the following statement on President Barack Obama's plan to address climate change:
"I applaud President Obama's bold leadership on climate change. The President recognizes our generational responsibility to act now and proposes a proven way to do so. In Massachusetts, through similar means, we have achieved significant emissions reductions, alongside significant job growth in a new sector. The President is showing the nation and the world how similar actions can both better steward the environment and strengthen the economy."
