S.148 – Environmental Justice

(Vote scored: Third Reading)

Pro-Environment vote: YES

This bill requires State agencies to incorporate environmental justice into their work, establishes an Advisory Council on Environmental Justice within the Agency of Natural Resources, and requires the creation of an environmental justice mapping tool. This bill will be an important step towards achieving meaningful community engagement in environmental decisions – particularly among overburdened communities and vulnerable populations.

Status: Passed the Senate 28-1
