Public Lands Preservation Act Update
The Public Lands Preservation Act (PLPA) continues to be a legislative priority for ELM and the Environmental Collaborative. The PLPA would provide needed protection from development for our parks, playgrounds, conservation lands, watersheds, and other natural resource lands covered by Article 97 of the commonwealth's constitution. The PLPA will be refiled in January, and it is important to develop momentum for the bill by having a long list of co-sponsors.
Please contact your senators and representatives and ask them to co-sponsor the PLPA. Ask your members to call or write their senators and representatives as well. Ask the legislators to call the offices of sponsors Senator Jamie Eldridge or Ruth Balser to sign on to the PLPA.
