A group of Vermont lawmakers plans to push ahead with legislation in the next session to reduce Vermont's carbon emissions.
Members of the Legislature’s Climate Solutions Caucus held public forums around the state in recent weeks to speak with residents about how they want to see climate change addressed at the Statehouse.

Vermont Public Radio reported Wednesday that Rep. Sarah Copeland Hanzas says the final priority for the group is making the state’s emissions reduction goals legally binding.

Their proposal to reduce Vermont’s carbon emissions will touch on four categories: transportation, energy-efficient building practices, renewable energy and accountability.
